Cheater Mac and Cheese
Every now and then I find myself desperately craving mac and cheese, but don't have the time or patience to wait for it to bake. This version tastes just as good and uses so much less cheese that it's a healthy option, too, and it only takes about 10 minutes to put together. Here's how: boil pasta, drain and toss with a little butter, shaved Parmesan cheese to taste, salt and pepper, and top with toasted breadcrumbs. You'd be surprised how little cheese you need to get the full effect- you can use something other than Parmesan, but I recommend something equally strong-flavored.
