Ingredients

    Pasta, cooked, 16 oz
    Low Fat Cheddar Cheese, 2 cup, shredded
    Butter, salted, 6 tbsp
    Progresso Bread Crumbs - Italian Style, 1/2 cup
    Milk, 2%, 1 to 1/12 cups
    Sage, ground, 1 tbsp
    Nutmeg, ground, 1 tsp
    Garlic, 1 clove
    Flour, white, .4 tablespoons
    Ground mustard, 1 serving
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

Cook the penne in a large pot with added salt, then drain.

Grate or shred the cheddar cheese and set aside

Now, make a simple roux, by melting 4 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan. Once melted add 4 tablespoons of four and whisk together in to a paste. Add ground sage, nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste, and crushed garlic clove, and let this cook on medium heat for about 1 minute. Do not let this brown or burn.

Now add 1 cup of milk and let come back up to heat and simmer until thickened. Stir continuously so it does not burn or stick to the bottom of the saucepan. Once it is thickened and will coat the back of a spoon, add the shredded cheese and stir to blend into the white sauce.
Turn onto low heat.

Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a microwave safe bowl and then add the bread crumbs and ground pepper to taste to it, and blend together.

Pour cooked penne into an oven safe casserole dish and add the cheese sauce. Stir gently to blend. Spread the bread crumb mixture evenly over the top and add freshly ground pepper to taste. Place casserole into the middle rack of the oven and cook for about 20 minutes or until slightly browned on top. Remove from oven and serve with a nice green salad on the side.

Enjoy!
