Packing is the pits!
Packing has to be one of the least fun things in the world. We are in the midst of packing up our two bedroom apartment to move to a more spacious abode to make room for the babe that will be joining us in the new year. One good thing that comes about from packing is finding those little items you totally forgot you had.
In our case, that was my husband discovering he had about 20 boxes of KD in the cupboard. My husband is a devoted KD fan – no macaroni and cheese in our 5 years of marriage has come close to being as delicious as his beloved KD. Until now.
This macaroni and cheese has to be the creamiest and cheesiest pasta bake I’ve made to date. I used whole wheat bow ties in place of the usual macaroni to make it a little more fun and topped it with big cubes of crispy multigrain bread, instead of the normal ground breadcrumb topping.
Loaded with a ton of cheese, and I mean of ton of cheese, it makes sense why this version of the traditional mac and cheese is the tastiest. But it definitely serves a crowd – 12 to be exact. So it’s perfect for your holiday dinners or lunches or to get you through a busy work week.
If my husband was willing to forgo one of his many boxes of beloved KD for a serving of this pasta bake, then you know you we have a winner here!
