      This is so yummy, better then the version I grew up on, sorry Mom!!! Ours was just the cheddar cheese, tomatoes, salt and pepper with the pasta. I wasn't sure if I would like the crouton type of topping, as I don't care the breadcrumb topping (to me it dries it out), but I really loved the flavor and texture of the croutons. I took photo's but was glad to see there was already wonderful photo's from Lori Mama. I let my butter broown too much, so I didn't have that vibrant orange color in my sauce. Thanks for posting a great recipe. Made for 123 Tag Game.
