Yield: 8

Ingredients:

1/2 lb macaroni pasta
1 cup of american cheese
1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese (I used reduced-fat)
1 cup of reduced fat milk
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
Pinch of salt

Steps:
1. Preheat oven 375 degrees F. Bring a medium sized pot to boil. Once water starts to boil, add pasta and stir occasionally until cooked (about 8 minutes). Drain and set pasta aside.

2. In a medium sized pan, add milk, cheeses, and salt. Stir occasionally until cheese starts to melt. Add salt and let make sure cheese coats the a spoon to tell if it is ready.

3. In a large mixing bowl, add pasta, cheese sauce, and breadcrumbs. Mix until pasta is evenly coated. Place in a baking dish and top with more breadcrumbs for an extra crunch. Bake for 10 minutes unatil cheese is a light golden brown on top.
