Medium Pot
Large Pan

Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry scallions, then trim and thinly slice, separating greens and whites.


Once water boils, add cavatappi to pot. Cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Scoop out and reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water, then drain.


Meanwhile, tear pork into smaller, bite-sized pieces. Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and a large pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring a few times, until pork begins to brown, 4-5 minutes. Stir in scallion whites and cook 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate.


After draining cavatappi, lower heat under pan used for pork to medium and add 4 TBSP butter. Once melted, stir in flour and cook 30 seconds. Slowly whisk in milk, reserved pasta cooking water, barbecue seasoning, and a few pinches of salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, then let bubble until just thickened, 1-2 minutes.


Remove pan from heat and add cream cheese and Mexican cheese, stirring until smooth. Stir in cavatappi and pork to combine. Season with salt and pepper.


Divide pasta between plates. Garnish with scallion greens and hot sauce (to taste).
