This recipe would be great with the Mexican Velveeta cheese to make a spicier Mac and Cheese.

This recipe from tillamookcheese.com won the 2006 grand prize for the nationwide macaroni and cheese recipe competion.

Contestant: Elizabeth Guise
Recipe Title: Tillamook Crab & Macaroni Bake
Serving Size: 8+

Ingredients:
10 oz rotini pasta
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups 2% milk
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
3/4 teaspoon garlic and herb Old Bay seasoning
4 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces Tillamook® Medium Cheddar cheese, grated
6 ounces Tillamook® Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
8 ounces fresh crabmeat

3 slices white bread
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic and herb Old Bay seasoning

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 375°.

Boil pasta in salted water until tender, drain and set aside.

Place slices of bread on baking sheet. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with seasoning, and bake for 5-7 minutes until golden brown. Turn over and bake an additional 5 minutes until golden on both sides. Remove from oven and let cool.

Melt butter over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add flour and whisk until smooth. Continue stirring butter and flour mixture over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until it has a slightly nutty aroma. Pour in milk while whisking and whisk until smooth. Cook while stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes until mixture thickens. Add salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and Old Bay seasoning. Add cream cheese and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and add the grated cheddar and monterey jack cheese. Stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in peppers, onions, shallots, and cilantro. Stir in pasta and gently fold in crab meat. Spray a large shallow (12" x 1 1/2”) ceramic casserole dish with pan spray. Pour in filling and spread out evenly.

Grate toasted bread slices and sprinkle over filling.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and bubbling around the edge. Serves 8 as an entree with a side salad.

hey Michellemarie, the macaroni & cheese came out nice (I figured out you must have left out the flour bit - that's okay, I do that too), and Jessica gave it her stamp of approval. Thanks! Sandyj

DH loves mac and cheese. I can't wait to try this out. Honestly, I'm ashamed to say.....I've never made it homemade before. I've only made the kraft brand. Thanks for the recipe!

mrsmac - Velveeta is processed cheese. It is made by Kraft here in the US. I actually got to see it being made in their plant in Illinois. It is their clever way of using scraps from perfectly porportioned cut cheese then the combine it in an easily melted form.

Michelemarie.........I made your mac and cheese tonight. It was really good and the family liked it too. Our little one wanted mac & cheese with his meal again tonight and I refused to deal with that Easy Mac & Cheese stuff again. So anyway I decided to try yours out on them and they really liked it.

The recipe is quite a lot though. I only had a 8 x 8 glass baking dish to make it in. I didn't realize the amount of sauce was that much till I went to put it in the dish. I only used 1/2 of the amount but all the pasta. I'll use the remaining cheese tomorrow with some steamed broccoli. I did turn the broiler on after the cooking time to brown the top though.

So next time I'll cut all the ingredients in 1/2 except for the pasta but this is def. in my file for recipes I've tried and we liked......thanks!
