Ever wonder what to do with that left over pasta? Why not a twist on an old classic? This is my version of Mac n cheese.

How to Make Cheezy Penne

Step-by-Step

  • 1Melt butter in a small sauce pan, add milk, and heat on low/med, add corn starch that's been dissolved in tepid water. Stir constantly, until it becomes thick. You are making a basic Alfredo, or white sauce. ( you can add garlic salt to this, or garlic powder, or any seasoning of your choice)
  • 2In a big mixing bowl, mix sauce with cooked pasta (I used Penne but you can use whatever you have handy, really.) Mix in most of the package of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • 3Place into a glass baking dish (the size appropriate for how much pasta you really want to use, I used a 9 x 7 sized dish)
  • 4Top with remaining cheese, and bread crumbs. Bake until gold and bubbly in a 350 F degree's oven.
