    Next, slowly pour the milk over the flour mixture and bring to a gentle boil. Add the salt, pepper and let simmer for a few minutes while continuing to stir. The salsa should begin to look creamy.

    To the side, grease an oven-proof casserole (or glass) dish. When you're finished mixing the cheese salsa with the pasta, transfer the final mixture to the casserole dish. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake at 350°F until the cheese begins to turn golden-brown (about 15 minutes.) Buen provecho!
