  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

  3. Put the eggs, heavy cream, Cajun seasoning, ground mustard, nutmeg, and a big pinch of salt in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. Add the egg mixture to the cooked pasta and stir to combine. 
  4. Toss together the Cheddar, mozzarella and Gouda in a large bowl. Add the cheeses to the pot and stir to evenly incorporate. Transfer the mixture to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
