  • 2 cups green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk

  3. Melt 3 Tbsp. butter over medium heat in saucepan. Add onion and green pepper and cook for 10-12 minutes until browned. Whisk in flour and cook for one minute. Slowly whisk in milk, cream, mustard, cayenne, salt and pepper.

  4. Stirring constantly, continue to cook for 8 minutes until nice and thick. Stir in 3 1/2 cups cheeses. Stir until cheese is melted. Add pasta and steak meat. Pour into a 2.4 qt. or a 9x13 baking dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with the leftover cheeses and the pretzel crumbs. Bake for 30 minutes until bubbly and nice and golden browned.
