Super Easy & Delish Mac. & Cheese {Three Cheese}

 There is nothing like a delicious dish of macaroni and cheese to complement your lunch or dinner.





I'm going to share with you a super easy (Heather proof) and delicious recipe that I know all you mac. and cheese lovers will enjoy.


You Need:
1/2 pound macaroni- I've used rigatoni, penne, and fusilli
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Panko Breadcrumbs 
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour  
3/4 cup milk 
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (1 packed cup)  
4 ounces deli-sliced American cheese
1 large egg yolk  
1/4 teaspoon paprika 
6 ramekins- 3.5 inches

Do this:
  1. In a large saucepan, melt the 1.5 tablespoons of butter. Whisk in the flour over moderate heat for 2 minutes. Whisk in the milk and cook, whisking, until boiling, about 5 mins. Add the cheddar and American cheeses and whisk until melted. Off the heat, whisk in the egg yolk and paprika. Fold in the macaroni. 
  2. Spray the bottom of the ramekins with cooking spray then sprinkle the Parmesan cheese in the ramekins.
  3. Gently spoon the macaroni into the prepared ramekins. Sprinkle panko breadcrumbs over the pasta.
  4. Bake them on the upper and middle shelving of the oven for about 10 minutes, until golden and sizzling. Let cool for 5 minutes.
