Ingredients

  • 1 pound cooked elbow macaroni noodles
  • 4 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 12 slices white American cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk

Directions

Heat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease your baking dish with a pat of butter and poor in about 1/2 of the cooked noodles.
Layer on six slices of cheese, two cups of the Monterey Jack cheese, and one cup of the shredded Cheddar cheese. Repeat this layer again. Generously sprinkle the Parmesean cheese and breadcrumbs on top. Pour milk down the sides of the of the mixture, taking care not to pour it on top of the layers.

Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Carefully uncover, and allow to bake an extra 15 to 20 minutes so the breadcrumbs crisp up and the milk has evaporated.

Enjoy!
