In medium pot over medium heat, melt butter; add olive oil. Whisk in flour. Cook, whisking often, until mixture forms smooth paste, about 2 minutes.

Bring milk mixture to boil, whisking occasionally to prevent lumps, until mixture forms smooth sauce, about 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat. Stir in cheddar cheese until melted.
Fold cooked pasta into cheese mixture until well combined; pour into 2-quart casserole dish; set aside.
