This is an oven testing recipe. Unintentionally. Have you heard about how you can test your oven for hot spots by spreading out a bunch of bread slices on a sheet and toasting them to see which parts get brown first? Well I never wanted to do that because it seemed like a waste of bread, but for this recipe you need to do it so I got to test my oven and eat the bread! Oh, and yes, this is another Thanksgiving post. So sue me. (Please don’t.)
I’ve made and shared recipes for Mac and Cheese before, as well as just lots of cheesy pasta dishes. It’s something we are a fan of here. When I last shared this recipe, I didn’t include it because I wanted to try it again with more pasta since it made too much sauce (in my opinion). I made a smidgeon more bread crumbs, but didn’t make too much extra since this way I could always make more with leftovers. The bread crumbs are best fresh, but can be reheated with the dish.
