I call this "Daddy mac and cheese" because it's so easy even I can do it. ;-) The kids love it! And now that I know this recipe, the box kind just doesn't cut it any more. I grease the pan with garlic olive oil and leave out the butter. And slice up a couple slices of whole wheat bread for the breadcrumbs. And use a large cast iron pan. (it's heavy)
My first meal cooked from these menus. I really enjoyed it but I think next time I will use less butter and maybe keep the same amount of cheese but increase the macaroni portion as it was a bit greasy. Very tasty overall, added parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs.
Delicious and easy, used pinko instead or regular bread crumbs. Very filling and fattening tho:(
