Step 6: Build it up

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Place the cooled pasta in a large mixing bowl.  Add the milk/cheese mixture, one scoop at a time, and mix with your hands (a spoon will also do).  Add half & half as necessary to help mix the cheese mixture into the pasta.

Place a layer of the pasta mixture in the bottom of an oven-safe bowl or casserole dish.  Place slices of the Pinconning cheese on top of the pasta and cheese mixture, then cover the Pinconning cheese with more pasta and cheese.  Top with a generous sprinkle of the sharp white cheddar cheese, and then top the white cheddar cheese with the Panko crumbs.
Made this for my department Christmas party last night and it was a big hit!!
<p>So glad to hear it! Thank you for sharing.</p>
OMG! I love The Union's Mac 'n Cheese, and I just made this. It tastes exactly the same. My family went crazy, especially since I've been trying to recreate this dish to no avail. It's amazing!
Thanks for the comment Marie! I still haven't had it, but it's great to get the feedback.
best recipe ever, especially when you add 6-7 pieces of well cooked crunchy bacon (chopped up)!
I'm glad you liked it, and agree that bacon would make it better!<br>
Oh yeah. So good. Dinner tonight
I saw this episode of D^3, and I think I'll try this next time. <br><br>That being said, I add Andouille sausage and Roma tomatoes (with a goodly amount of cayenne pepper) to my version...<br><br>So far I've gotten good reviews (folks asking for the recipe, which amounts to me saying &quot;Well... it's hard to explain...&quot;)<br>
You had me at CHEESE! I just can't say no to it!
