It was a chilly Sunday when I prepared this dish for our (grown up) kids who were all coming over for dinner.  Though they all enjoy pasta and homemade mac and cheese, I changed this dish up a bit by adding pepper jack cheese, which is Michelle’s favorite and added some other varieties that I had on hand in the fridge. 

I like to use Campanelle Pasta, which means little bells.  These curled pasta resemble a dangling bell.  They and suck up the soupy mixture and hold up their nice al dente texture even when baked alarm tones!
