Cook the pasta
To the pot of boiling water, add the pasta and cook, 2 to 3 minutes or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving about 1½ cups of the pasta cooking water, drain the pasta thoroughly. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot. Wipe out the pot.

Start the sauce
In the same pot, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil on medium. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Whisk in the cream and ½ cup of the reserved pasta cooking water. Cook, stirring, 4 to 6 minutes or until thickened. Add the remaining pasta cooking water as necessary until you have a smooth sauce that coats the back of a wooden spoon.

Finish the mac & cheese
To the pot of sauce, add the mozzarella and cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, until the cheese has melted. Add the spice blend, spinach, roasted red pepper and cooked pasta. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until thoroughly combined and heated through; season with S&P to taste.
