    1 slice wheat bread
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    4 cups fat-free milk
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
    1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 drained canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, seeded and chopped
    8 cups hot wheat elbow pasta (about 5 cups uncooked pasta)
    1/2 cup chopped green onions
    1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles, drained
    Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 375°.

Place bread in a food processor, pulse until coarse crumbs form to measure 1/2 cup; set aside.

Place flour in a large saucepan.
Gradually add milk, stirring constantly with a whisk. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer mixture for 2 minutes or until thick.

Remove from heat; stir in 2 tablespoons Parmesan and the next 5 ingredients (2 tablespoons Parmesan through chipotle chiles), stirring until cheese melts.

Combine cheese sauce, pasta, onions, and tomatoes in a bowl.

Pour the mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Combine 2 tablespoons remaining Parmesan and breadcrumbs; sprinkle over pasta mixture.

Cover and bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until mixture is bubbly.
