Philly Mac and Cheese
Cook the pasta to Al Dente (the time will vary depending on your pasta of choice).
Sear the steak slices in a pan set over high heat (1 minute, just long enough to get some color). Season with salt and pepper (to taste) and place the steak slices in a bowl (or anything else you can find).
In a large pot, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat.
Add in the diced Onion and Bell Pepper. Cook until onions are translucent (1-2 minutes).
Add in the AP flour, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper and grounded nutmeg and continuously stir until the flour takes on a nutty flavor (3-4 minutes).
Slowly pour in the milk while stirring.
Bring the mixture to a simmer and add in the Dijon mustard, Cream Cheese and Provolone.
Stir until the cheese has melted.
Mix in the pasta.
Mix in the steak and check for seasoning.
