Ingredients

    1 cup cooked Elbow Macaroni
    1.5 T butter
    1 T flour
    3/4 tsp mustard
    1/4 tsp ground pepper
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/8 tsp onion powder
    3/4 cup 2% milk
    2 oz cheddar cheese, shredded (use the chunk and shred it!)
    2 oz mozzarella cheese (part-skim is fine, I used slices)
    1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
    1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
    1/2 tsp olive oil

Directions

Prepare noodles according to package instructions, drain, set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Melt butter on medium to medium-high heat. Add flour and cook for at least 1 minute to cook out the flour flavor. Add mustard, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Slowly add milk, 1/4 cup at a time, whisking to incorporate and make sure there are no lumps. Reduce heat to low. Once the mixture is creamy, add cheddar and mozzarella cheeses one 1 oz at a time, melting and whisking in completely before adding the next ounce. Remove from heat.

Pour noodles into cheese sauce and mix. Pour noodle and sauce mixture into a small, oven-safe ramiken. Mix panko and parmesan in separate bowl, then evenly distribute on top of noodle mixture. Spritz or sprinkle olive oil on top. Bake for 20 minutes or until top is golden brown and bubbly!

Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
