Ingredients

    1 1/4 cups uncooked elbow macaroni (about 6 ounces)
    1 cup 1% low-fat milk
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 1/4 cups (5 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 (1 1/2-ounce) slice white bread
    1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain.
Combine milk and flour in a medium saucepan, stirring with a whisk. Cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly with a whisk. Add cheese, salt, and pepper, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Add pasta; toss to coat. Let stand 4 minutes.

Place bread in a food processor, and pulse 10 times or until the crumbs measure 1 1/4 cups.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs, and cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Stir in melted butter; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over pasta mixture.
