The mac-n-cheese is Rachael Ray's.
1lb of your preferred pasta, I use twists
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded Asiago cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons evoo
(She calls for parsley and rosemary, but I leave it out)
Boil pasta in salted water, slightly undercook.
Melt butter in a saucepan and stir in flour. Whisk in milk. Bring to a bubble. Cook to thicken milk, 2-3 minutes. Add cheeses and black pepper. Stir to melt cheeses. Drain pasta and combine with cheese sauce, transfer to a baking dish. Place bread crumbs in a bowl, add evoo (and herbs if desired). Stir to combine and top pasta and cheese. Place under broiler to brown bread crumbs.
Of course I improvise on this recipe too, and use other cheeses depending on what I have available. Tonight I am using mild cheddar, a package of shredded "Italian" cheese (Asiago, Romano, Provolone, etc), and some fresh grated Parm.
