  1. Approx 1 lb conchigliette pasta
  2. 1/4 C diced onion
  3. 2 Tbl butter
  4. 2 Tbl flour
  5. 1 1/2- 1 3/4 C milk
  6. 2 3/4 C shredded white sharp cheddar
  7. 2 3/4 C shredded smoked gouda (if you are not a fan of smoked gouda, 'sigh'- I forgive you, you may use regular gouda)
  8. 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (sometimes I use a Mexican blend to spice it up for a change)
  9. salt & pepper to taste
  1. Cook pasta.
  2. Preheat oven to 400.
  3. Heat the pan and add butter. Once melted stir in onion and cook for about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Stir in flour. Stir continuously until a paste is created. This should be quick.
  5. Add milk and stir continuously until smooth.
  6. Add cheese and stir continuously until no bumps and completely smooth.
  7. Add salt and pepper and turn off heat.
  8. Slowly add pasta into the the pan of cheese. Be sure you are fully covering the shells before you add more.
  9. Once all pasta has been added to the cheese pour into a rectangular glass bakeware.
  10. Top with breadcrumbs and put in the oven for 20-30 minutes.
  11. *I often put tinfoil on the the first half of the baking time and remove it for the rest.
  12. Enjoy your glutenous cheesy comfort!
  1. I think mac n' cheese deserves a decent amount of pepper for those who pinch small! I usually grind some on each plate afterwards as well.
  2. Wear spandex style pants before indulging. ­čśë
