2 Small shallots, minced
2 Green onions, minced
2 Garlic cloves, Minced
1/4 C. Brined capers

Sauce
4 T. Butter, clarified

1 Pt. Heavy cream
1/2 C. White wine, dry
1/2 lb. Sharp *natural cheddar cheese, grated
1 t. Kosher salt
1 t. White pepper
1 t. Nutmeg, fresh grated


Bring 2 qt. cold, fresh water to a boil, add salt and pasta.


Cook for 6 minutes, then drain.


Put pasta, shallot, onion, garlic and capers in a casserole gently stir to mix.


Sauce:


Melt butter over medium heat, whisk in four then cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly to blend and keep from burning.


Add about a quarter of the cream to the roux, whisk until smooth before slowly whisking in the rest of the cream.


Add the wine and whisk to incorporate before adding 3/4 of the cheese.


Remove from heat once the sauce is smooth.


Stir seasoning into sauce before combining with macaroni; sprinkle the remaining cheese over top of the casserole and bake for 45 minutes in a 350˚ pre-heated oven.


Remove from oven, cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
