  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine cooked macaroni with Alfredo sauce and shredded cheese in a large bowl and toss to blend.
  3. Pour into an oven safe casserole dish.
  4. Mix bread crumbs with remaining ingredients and sprinkle over top of casserole.
  5. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until bread crumbs are golden.

By the way, it's a great cooking short cut to use jarred Alfredo sauce. It is OK to give yourself permission to use jarred sauce.

  • 16 ounces white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko bread crumbs
