Ingredients

  • COOK:

  • 8

    ounces dry pipette or elbow macaroni

  • MELT:

  • 3

    tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 2

    tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 2

    cups whole milk, warmed

  • 1

    ⁄2 cup low-sodium chicken broth, warmed

  • 3 each

    fontina cheese, white Cheddar, and white American cheese, shredded

  • 3

    tablespoon Parmesan, grated

  • 2

    teaspoon prepared yellow mustard

  • 1

    teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • Salt, black pepper, nutmeg, and Tabasco to taste

  • PROCESS:

  • 2

    slices soft white bread

  • 10

    leaves fresh basil

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. Coat four 1-cup ovenproof baking dishes (or one 1-qt. baking dish) with nonstick spray. Cook macaroni in boiling salted water in a saucepan for 1 minute less than directed on the package. Drain and set aside; return pan to medium-low heat. Melt butter in the pan, then add flour, stirring until pasty. Gradually whisk in milk and broth, increase heat to medium, and bring to a simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low, stir in cheeses until smooth, then add mustard, Worcestershire; season with salt, pepper, nutmeg, and Tabasco. Fold in macaroni and transfer to prepared baking dishes. Process bread, basil, oil, salt, and pepper to taste in a food processor until fine; sprinkle over macaroni. Bake until sauce is bubbly and crumbs are browned, 15 minutes.
