  • 1 box (16oz) dried penne pasta
  • 2-3 cups warm water
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1oz cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup panko style breadcrumbs


  1. Place pasta in pan and add water until the pasta is just covered. Bring up to a rolling boil on medium-high heat.
  2. Cook pasta until 80% of the water has been absorbed, about 15-20 minutes. Stir frequently.
  3. Make a small well in the middle of the pan and place 2 tablespoons of butter. When butter is melted, add flour and whisk until combined.
  4. While whisking, slowly add the milk to the pasta. Once all milk is added in, whisk in cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, ¾ cup cheddar cheese, salt and pepper.
  5. Using rubber spatula, mix well to coat pasta in sauce. Remove from heat.
  6. Sprinkle ¼ cup cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese over pasta. In a bowl, combine remaining tablespoon of butter and bread crumbs until butter is evenly distributed. Sprinkle over top cheese.
  7. Turn oven on to Broil High, and broil pasta for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, and serve from pan.
