Mac & Cheese


Mac & Cheese

I was looking in the refrigerator last night trying to figure out what to cook when I noticed I still had some cheese sauce left.  This cheese sauce should never be forgotten, it is too good.  So, being Friday I was having the urge for some type of comfort food to compensate for a really crappy week that Lynda and I had.  It was a no brainer, mac & cheese.

Ingredients:

1lb       Pasta

Cheese sauce

½ cup Bread crumbs

1          Roma tomato, sliced

Extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

Heat the cheese sauce over low heat stirring often.  Preheat the oven to 350.  Cook the pasta until aldente.  Add the cooked pasta to the cheese sauce.  Place your mac & cheese into an oven safe dish.  Cover with the bread crumbs and tomato slices.  Sprinkle a little olive oil on top.  Place in the oven and cook for about 30 minutes.  Put the mac & cheese under the broiler to brown the top.  Be careful it does not burn.
