DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pasta--half way through prepare sauce below.
  • Simmer butter, flour.
  • Add milk until slightly bubbly.
  • IMPORTANT!--Remove from heat--add cheese. Mix cheese but do NOT completely melt (will be too thick). Unmelted chunks will melt in oven.
  • Add beaten eggs and salt and mix.
  • Put pasta in casserole dish and pour mixture over, and stir.
  • Add ½ cup bread crumbs on top of casserole (I used Italian Style). Sprinkle plenty of Paprika, on top.
  • Bake covered, at 350° for 25 minutes. Uncover and put under broiler to brown top.
  • ***(Leftover Option: (fried mac & cheese)***.
  • Cut into squares and coat with breadcrumbs. Sauté/fry in skillet (oil).
  • OK-didn't say it was healthy, but good!
