Mac and Cheese

Panko is a bit more brown then I normally like.
Still good though :)


  • 1 box Annie's shells and white cheddar
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup milk (I use skim)
  • 2 Tbsp butter (I use salted... I have to salt Annie's if I don't and salted butter has about the right amount for me)
  • Cheese. It doesn't really matter what type. I've used:
    • Cheddar
    • Mozzarella
    • Colby Jack
    • Provolone
  • Vegetables. I've used:
    • Frozen peas
    • Frozen corn
    • Fresh broccoli
    • Green onions
    • Jalapenos
    • Mushrooms
    • Snow or sugar snap peas
  • Meat. I've
    • Cooked in imitation crab
    • Served with hot dogs
  • Panko


  1. Cook the pasta as directed
  2. While the pasta is draining, make the cheese sauce as directed using 1/4 cup milk and the butter.
  3. Heat up oven to 350 F
  4. Add the extra cheese and heat until melted.
  5. Add more milk to thin it as necessary.

  8. Pour cheese/vegetable mixture over pasta
  9. Sprinkle panko liberally on top
  10. Bake for 15 minutes
  11. Broil untill panko is browned
  12. Serve
