This is a really easy dish and it is very economical. It takes no time to
prepare and it is not from a box.
1pkg of Cream cheese
2Cups of milk
1 tsp Dijon Mustard ( i use the grainy one)
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese (you can use mild or medium)
2 tbsp flour
1/4 cup of butter
salt and pepper
package of Penne noodles
For the topping:
3 tbsp melted butter
1/4 Italian seasoned breadcrumbs (don't use plain too boring)
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
Melt butter in heavy pot. Whisk in flour till smooth.
On medium to low heat whisk in milk then add cream cheese, Dijon mustard,
salt & pepper
whisk till cream cheese has melted and no lumps.
Turn off heat and add grated cheese into melted sauce. Stir
till completely melted.
Cook Penne noodles according to package directions
I want to note here that I use Penne noodles
because they are so wonderful in holding
the delicious sauce inside. When you bite into
the noodle you get a burst of sauce
Melt 3 tbsp butter
Add 1/4 Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
and 2 tbsp grated Parmesan
Once noodles are cooked add
them to the pot of sauce
and stir till all is nicely mixed.
Grease a casserole dish
add noodles and sprinkle
breadcrumb mixture to the top.
Bake in 400 degree oven
for 20 minutes only
