A delicious, baked, three-cheese “mac and cheese” pasta dish the whole family will love!
This delicious, baked mac and cheese is so easy and so yummy! It’s made with three cheeses melted together in a “healthier” creamy sauce. It’s also served with big shell noodles, rather than small macaroni noodles. It’s so easy to make and completely delicious!
- 1/2 lb medium-size shell pasta (like pipe rigate)
- 2 tablespoon butter
- 1 clove garlic
- 2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups cheddar cheese , shredded
- 1 1/2 cups parmesan cheese , freshly grated
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese , shredded
- salt and pepper , to taste
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs , optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
Place a medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Add butter. Once butter is melted, add the garlic and sauté, stirring, for one minute.
Add the yogurt, milk, cheddar cheese, 1 cup of parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and salt and pepper. Stir until combined and cheese begins to melt. Gently fold in pasta noodles and stir until incorporated.
Pour cheesy pasta into an un-greased casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs (if desired) over the top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes.
