    CHEF GRPA's Note:

    Oh My!! This was so good. We watched Ina make it on Barefoot Contessa and decided to try it. I used 1% milk and that was fine. This is what mac and cheese is suppose to taste like. It's a perfect comfort food. Loved it. It is great for both kids and adults. I actually make it in individual ramekins for a party. Adults are more apt to eat it this way -- especially when there are kids around.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 375*F.
    2. 2
      Drizzle oil into a large pot of boiling salted water. Add the macaroni and cook according to the directions on the package, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain well.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, heat the milk in a small saucepan, but don't boil it. Melt 6 tablespoons of butter in a large (4-quart) pot and add the flour. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring with a whisk. While whisking, add the hot milk and cook for a minute or two more, until thickened and smooth. Off the heat, add the Gruyere, Cheddar, 1 tablespoon salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add the cooked macaroni and stir well. Pour into a 3-quart baking dish.
    4. 4
      Slice the tomatoes and arrange on top. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, combine them with the fresh bread crumbs, and sprinkle on the top. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and the macaroni is browned on the top.
    5. 5
      My Note: 7-2013 I made this tonight, instead of bread crumbs, I used panko. I was so surprise many people omitted the tomatoes, I did use tomatoes (one small. It turn out not that cheesy, my kids enjoy. Next time I would under cook the pasta, so that they don't get mushy when baked in the oven. Will definitely be making this recipe again.
