Make the sauce: Add the whole milk to the pot, and let it come to a simmer while stirring occasionally. As it heats, it will thicken. Once the milk has come to a thicker sauce consistency, add your spices.
Add the cheese: In small portions, add the cheese to the sauce. Add a small amount, stir to combine, and repeat until all the cheese is combined. Once the cheese has melted, add the pasta, and combine well.
