WARNING: This recipe is not for the faint of calories. Because of this fact I had not made this in a long time. I tried to lighten it up a bit though. For all you cheesy lovers; it is very cheesy and delicious!! Moderation is the key: I only had a small portion.
Yes, I did add a few hot dogs, cut up. My family likes the addition, me not so much!!
Baked Mac & Cheese
1 pound pasta
3 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon flour
3 cups milk
8 oz. cream cheese (I used light)
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I used 3 and then sprinkled a little bit on top before baking)
Grease a 9 x13 casserole dish. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, rinse. Set aside.
I wanted to add the asparagus to it, but knew my one daughter would not like it and it just wasn't worth the fight!!
You could add lots of things to this versatile recipe.
Now one question: How do you get the breadcrumbs to brown? What did I do wrong?
