Grown Up Mac N' Cheese

Grown Up Mac N' Cheese
Everyone loves mac n' cheese.  It is a comfort food that instantly transports people back to their childhood.  This version takes that classic dish and gives it an adult twist with the addition of Parmesan and goat cheese.

1 lb Cooked Pasta (I used bow ties)
4 Tablespoons Flour
1/2 Stick Butter
2 Cups 2% Milk
8 1/4" Rounds of Goat Cheese
3 Cups Shredded Mozzarella
1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan
1/2 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  In a saucepan on a low heat melt the butter and add the flour to make a roux.  Add the milk, 2 cups of the mozzarella, and 2 rounds of the goat cheese to the saucepan.  Stir until the sauce comes together and cook until no longer runny.  Add the pasta to the sauce and stir until the pasta is coated.  Pour the pasta and sauce into a greased baking pan.  Top with the other 6 goat cheese rounds, the last cup of mozzarella, the Parmesan, and the bread crumbs.  Bake until golden on top.
