Creamy Mac n Cheese with Roasted Scallions

Who doesn’t love mac n cheese? The cheesy noodl-y goodness, and the moment I realized oven baked mac n cheese with breadcrumb topping was maybe the best moment of my life.  There seems to be a move in a lot of restaurants to bring comfort food back and make it stylish, well I couldn’t be more on board with that movement.  Today you can find so many different types of mac n cheese, the oddest though might have to be the blue cheese mac n cheese my sister ordered one time.  That was a little strong.

I added the scallions to this recipe and to be honest, they could have been there or not but roasting them for a bit was a nice touch.  And the key to getting that oven baked goodness is definitely the crispy breadcrumb topping, and even more so when you mix in a little parmesan cheese.

HERE is the recipe I followed (minus the broccoli, however if you like broccoli that would be a delicious addition)

** for the roasted scallions, use about 5 whole scallions, trim each end and place in oven safe dish.  Add 1 tbl balsamic vinegar and raost at 350 for about 20 min or until wilted.

** Feel free to use whatever block cheese you have or want to add

***after the sauce is mixed with the pasta, place in oven proof dish and top with about 1 cup breadcrumbs.  Bake at 400 for 15-20 min or until topping gets golden brown.  (you might want to put the dish on a baking tray in case the cheese sauce bubbles over a bit)
