  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1-2 cups milk
  • 2 cups cheese blend mozzarella, fontina and parmesan work great but white cheddar is fabulous too!
  • 12 oz pasta
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs


  • Boil pasta noodles according to box directions.
  • While pasta is cooking start your roux which is the fancy French term for sauce base. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Sprinkle in flour, one tablespoon at a time, stirring to make a butter paste. Brown the paste a little. Add milk, 1/2 cup a time, stirring constantly until the sauce reaches desired consistency. Add cheese and stir until fully incorporated. Boom! Sauce is done.
  • Drain pasta and add to cheese sauce.
  • Pour everything into a baking dish, sprinkle with cheese and bread crumbs.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
