Mac & Cheese All Grown Up

While the rest of the country was watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, I was busy tweeting about anything but the Super Bowl and spray painting my flea market candlesticks (results to come soon). But I did manage to make a yum mac and cheese dish for the Husband before he left me to go watch the game with people who actually care about football.

Mac and cheese instantly brings to mind the infamous blue box that gave me nourishment plus 30 lbs in college. But now that I’m no longer a starving student, I can afford to recreate the poor version with three cheeses and panko bread crumbs (because it’s more exotic than white bread). 

Are there any college cheap foods you like to remix?

Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart.
