INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar
  • 1 pound orecchiette, half-cooked
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, milk, egg, Sriracha, cream cheese, and Cheddar. 

In a 4-quart glass baking dish, place the half-cooked orecchiette, and pour the cheese mixture over top, letting it fill the dish and surround the pasta noodles. Next, sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the whole dish, and pat down lightly with a spoon to get a semi-even texture. Place in the oven, uncovered, and bake for 45-55 minutes.
