It was kinda a mixed up recipe. I started with enough cheese for doing a crockpot recipe then realized it was too late to crockpot so then just did a stove top version.
The stove top version I loosely followed was this recipe I found at Allrecipes. but it was very much mixed up with the crockpot recipe.
8 oz pasta
1/4 c butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tsp pepper
2 cup milk
3/4 lb grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup bread crumbs.
first off.. preheat the oven to 400.
cook the pasta til almost done.
while that is doing it's thing make a white sauce by melting the butter in a frying pan, and once that is melted slowly adding the combine flour, mustard and pepper. Once that is thoroughly mixed add the milk VERY SLOWLY.
then add all but one cup of the cheese. Mix until thoroughly melted.
Put into a casserole.
top with remaining cheese.
Top that with sprinkled bread crumbs.
cook for 25-35 minutes until it looks done. I removed the cover for the last five minutes.
Let cool a spell for children to eat, and then enjoy. Hubby liked this enough that he had two servings. Lad liked it enough that he finished his plate. I liked it well enough I'll do it again, but I'll cook the pasta a little less long. :) Probably use a tad less milk and cheese as well. But this worked so I"m not complaining.
Here's what was left when we finished supper. :)
