Number of Servings: 4


    - 8 ounces whole wheat pasta (penne or similar)
    - Cheddar Cheese, 2 cup, shredded
    - Pepper, red or cayenne, (to taste)
    - Milk, nonfat, .75 cup
    - Organic All-Purpose White Flour, 2 tbsp
    -Canola Oil, 2 tbsp
    - Panko Bread Crumbs, 0.15 cup
    -Parmesan Cheese, grated, .5 cup grated


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook pasta according to package instructions, then drain and rinse in cool water.

Make a roue with the canola oil and flour, ensuring that the flour cooks thoroughly. Mix in the milk in a slow stream, whisking constantly. Mixture will not thicken. Add cayenne, if desired. Add grated cheese to the hot milk-flour mixture and stir to melt.

Toss pasta with flour-milk mixture and cheese in a large baking dish, or four individual serving dishes. Top with a little reserved cheese, topping with a bit of shredded Parmesan and panko, if desired.

Bake 25-30 minutes for a large baking dish, or 15-20 for four small dishes. Let stand five minutes before serving.
