Garlic Parmesan Macaroni & Cheese Is Worth the Garlic Breath

A bowl of breath mints may be required after eating this creamy garlic Parmesan mac and cheese recipe, but you probably won't hear any complaints. 

You'll need:

  • 16 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions to al dente
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 4 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

Here's how to make it: 

  1. For the topping, melt the 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet. Add the panko and cook, stirring, until golden. Set aside.
  2. Melt the 1/4 cup butter in a skillet. Add the garlic and cook about 1 minute. Sprinkle in the flour and stir to combine. Slowly whisk in all but 1/2 cup of the milk. Bring to a boil and cook until it thickens up. Add the cornstarch to the remaining milk and stir to combine. Pour into the milk mixture. Add the chicken bouillon granules and season with salt and pepper. Turn off the heat. 
  3. Add the Cheddar, 3/4 cup of the Parmesan and the mozzarella. Stir until well blended. Add the pasta. Mix well. 
  4. Top with the panko crumbs and remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 15 minutes.
