3 Cheese Baked Mac & Cheese

            In this version I used traditional elbow macaroni! Both types of noodles work equally well!                                                                                 

1 Box Rotini Pasta cooked till almost done ( leave al dente so when you bake they hold up)
4 TBS butter
4 TBS flour
5 cups milk
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup cottage cheese small curd
8 oz. cream cheese
1 tsp salt

Dash of red pepper
Dash of nutmeg
1 cup bread crumbs
1 TBS. chopped parsley flakes


Grease large casserole dish & preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large heavy saucepan melt butter. Stir in flour whisk well. Slowly stir in milk & cook until thick & bubbly. Add cheeses & continue to stir & cook until cheeses are melted & you have a thick cheese sauce. Take of heat & stir in noodles that you cooked & drained. Add red pepper, salt if needed & nutmeg. Pour into the casserole dish. Mix bread crumbs with parsley & sprinkle them over your casserole.  Dot the top with more butter. Bake for 45 minutes or until browned & bubbly . SO DELICIOUS warm & gooey. You may add chopped up white chicken uncooked or ham or peas or shrimp or crab or ...... etc. You get the idea this has no end to it's variety.
