Mac ‘n’ Cheese

The Mac that Smiles Back

I thought this unique topping for mac ‘n’ cheese from the Garden Grill Restaurant at Walt Disney World was just the cutest thing I’d ever seen. I had to imitate it and add it to my own kid friendly recipe for macaroni and cheese. The addition of Goldfish crackers makes for the perfect presentation for both the young and the young at heart. I hope this meal brings some smiles to your kitchen table.


Goldfish Topping:

1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs

1 1/3 cup Parmesan Flavored Goldfish, divided

1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated

2 tablespoons Butter, melted

1/2 pound Shell Pasta (or whatever shape you prefer)
