I was looking for a recipe that doesn't require a fake cheese sauce and I stumbled across this one. I think it is a good basic recipe that will allow you to experiment. I made a few changes. For starters I only used 2 cups of milk, I like my mac and cheese not so creamy, and I used a blend of Sharp Cheddar cheese and Montery Jack. I added some garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper and parsley. Instead of elbow macaroni I used whole wheat rotini for some extra bite. I also layered some turkey pepporoni in the center which made it even more delicious and added some more flavor. I really like the idea of adding the toasted bread crumbs on top, I usually would put parmesan cheese on top and place it in the broiler for a crunch topping, but this is much better. Melting the cheeses before mixing it with the pasta is the key to success for this dish. I definitely will be making this again. Yummy!!!!
