You can’t go wrong with this creamy, cheesy classic. Topped with a hearty layer of panko crumbs and added parmesan for a crispy golden-brown surface, this homestyle baked mac and cheese recipe is a sure thing.
Cook pasta according to package.
In a microwave safe bowl combine heavy cream and cheddar. Microwave on high in one-minute increments, stirring after each time, until cheese is melted and sauce is creamy (about 3 minutes total).
To preheat the oven, touch Combination three times to select Combo 3 and then press Start/Set.
In a large bowl, add cooked noodles and creamy cheese sauce, stir until pasta is well coated. Stir in remaining cheese, salt, pepper and cornstarch. Transfer to an 8x11 glass baking dish.
In a bowl, combine panko with parmesan. Spread evenly over pasta.
Place the baking dish in the oven, using the wire rack within the wire shelf, set bake time for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly. Garnish if required and serve.
