DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until it's tender but not mushy and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350. In the empty pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for a minute or so, until the mixture starts to turn golden.
  • Stir in the milk and bring the sauce to a full boil, whisking constantly. Reduce the heat and simmer for a few minutes, until the mixture is nice and thick.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the cheese until it melts. Add salt to taste, then stir in the drained pasta and beans.
  • If you want a breadcrumb topping, pulse the bread, butter, and Parmesan in a food processor until the bread turns into crumbs and the mixture is well blended.
  • Pour the macaroni and cheese into a baking dish and top with the breadcrumbs or additional cheese.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the dish is bubbly around the edges and the topping is golden.
