Baked Macaroni and Cheese

We've all been there.  You forgot to take something out of the freezer for dinner.  Now what?  Well, last night it was macaroni and cheese.  I went ahead and took everything out for dinner for the next few days so it can defrost and made pasta.  What kid can resist pasta? 

I could not remember where I got the last recipe I made...and it was this was a hodgepodge of recipes and thrown into the oven.  The kids loved it, hubby loved it and I was fine with that!  Here is what I did:

Boil the pasta according to the directions on the box.  (I use whole wheat noodles.)  Mix 2 cups of milk and 2 cups of heavy cream with 1 cup of fontina cheese (freshly grated) and 1 cup of parmesan cheese (freshly grated).  Add salt and pepper and about 2 teaspoons of flour.  When the pasta is cooked, drain and add it to the milk/cheese mixture.  Place into a glass dish and sprinkle with another cup of each cheese.  I also love freshly grated nutmeg in this, but didn't include it this time around.  Into the oven for 15 minutes and there you go.  Fast mac and cheese. 

I do need to find that other recipe, though.  Although this was great...the other was AMAZING!  :)
