When it comes to comfort food, nothing beats an ooey, gooey macaroni and cheese casserole. The pasta cooks in the sauce, making the prep time next to nothing.
For more authentic flavor, grate your own cheese (a shredder blade on a food processor is good for this) instead of buying packaged pre-shredded cheese.
Try a combination of cheeses, using Gruyére for a nuttier flavor or Monterey Jack for a milder flavor. If you don't have any Parmesan cheese on hand, just leave it out.
Making homemade breadcrumbs is a snap. Just throw a slice of bread in the food processor and process until it becomes crumbs.
