  1. Cook macaroni noodles just until al dente (still slightly firm). Drain well (do not rinse).
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together cream, milk, eggs, dry mustard, pepper and salt.
  3. Place macaroni back into the pot and reduce heat to medium low. Add butter and stir until melted. Add in cream mixture and cheese. Stir until hot and creamy, about 3 minutes.
