Mac and Cheese
The Mill Town Kitchen
Freshly Grated White Cheddar Cheese
(I like to use Cavatappi)
Crispy Panko Topping
(seasoned generously with salt, pepper and garlic powder)
Boil your pasta according to the package directions
Using a small saute pan, melt 1 tbsp butter and add your seasoned Panko to toast - Keep a close eye on it because it will toast fast!
In a sauce pot, melt your butter on medium high heat
Add flour and stir continuously for about 1 minute
Pour in your whole milk and whisk continuously until thickened
Turn heat to low and begin to add your cheese in batches, whisking in between to melt the cheese
Taste for seasoning and add salt/pepper as needed (I love lots of black pepper)
Pour your cheese sauce over your cooked pasta and stir to combine
Pour your mac and cheese into a serving bowl and top it with your crispy toasted Panko!
