Mac and Cheese With Herbed English Muffin Breadcrumbs
You likely have a go-to macaroni and cheese recipe, but we're here to convince you to stray from tradition. Cute and curly cavatappi noodles hug the creamy cheese sauce better than elbows, and the kids will think they're fun to eat. Speaking of cheese, we've discovered the ultimate trifecta: white cheddar and Gruyère in the pasta, and Pecorino in the breadcrumbs. Instead of opting for Panko, we made our own breadcrumbs with English muffins—the perfect way to use up the second half of the bag. The tang from the muffins mixed with fresh thyme and rosemary makes for a deliciously crunchy topping that will have you scraping the baking dish clean.
