Easy Breezy Baked Mac and Cheezy

Woah. Before you run away, must I remind you? I NEVER give you hard stuff right? So don't worry about it! Here is my little secret..this recipe uses BOXED macaroni and cheese! Feel better? Good! You will feel even more amazing once you taste it. So let's get started. You will need:

1 or 2 boxes of your fav. brand Mac and cheese. ( Depending on how many people are eating,
1 box generally serves 2 people )

Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Grated Parmesan Cheese. (I used a Parmesan/Romano mix)

2 cups of milk

1 tablespoon of Butter.

2 tablespoons of Cream Cheese.

Bread crumbs.

OPTIONAL MIX INS: Spicy sausage, chicken, chopped broccoli.

Preheat Oven to 370 degrees.

Step 1: Prepare Macaroni as directed on box, drain, leaving pasta moist. ( While pasta is boiling saute any mix In's you want to use, so that they are cooked)

Step 2: Over low flame add cheese packet, 1 cup of milk, butter, cream cheese, and sprinkle in some shredded cheddar and Parmesan until it is gooey.Salt and Pepper to taste. A dash of garlic powder, if desired.

Add Mix In's Last. Stir.

Step 3: Pour Macaroni into a casserole dish and layer with Cheddar Cheese, and Parmesan. If you are making a lot, alternate cheese and pasta layers until you run out of pasta, ending with Cheese layer on top.

Step 4: Pour 1 cup of milk over the entire dish. Sprinkle with a light layer of bread crumbs.

Step 5: Bake for about 30 minutes, or until cheese starts to bubble and bread crumbs start to toast lightly.

Serve with a Hawaiian roll, and a beer. :)
