3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 24-count mini muffin tin with olive oil spray.
4. Reduce heat to low. Mix in the cheese, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and nutmeg.
5. Remove from heat then mix in the whisked egg and cooked pasta.
6. Melt the butter in a medium size pot over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for one minute.

Homemade mac and cheese made with DaVinci Pasta is baked in mini muffins tins until golden brown then served warm and melty. Both adults and kids love them!
8. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of mac and cheese into each mini muffin tin. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until lightly golden on top.
