½ cube butter
¼ cup flour
2 cups milk
8 oz cream cheese

Salt and pepper to taste
Topping
1 cup Panko bread crumbs

In another pan cook the macaroni until al dente, drain and set aside in large mixing bowl.

Add the cream cheese to the warm white sauce and stir until smooth, then add the
shredded cheese and continue to stir until blended and smooth.

Add cheese sauce to the cooked noodles and mix until fully incorporated.

Take remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and melt in pan. Add panko crumbs to the butter and coat. Place buttered crumbs on a cookie sheet and carefully under the broiler toast until golden brown.

In a large baking dish (Sprayed lightly with cooking oil) add the macaroni mixture and sprinkle the top with toasted panko crumbs. Place in oven and cook at 350 de- grees for 30 minutes.
