While working at Friday's we used to have this amazing macaroni and cheese with jalapenos and chicken in it. Well I decided that I was going to make up my own version of the pasta (minus the chicken) and it has become an easy fan favorite in our household. It takes almost no prep time and makes a delicious meal that we can eat for a couple of days. So here it goes...
Easy Weeknight Jalapeno Macaroni and Cheese
1 box Penne Pasta
2, 15 ozjars Alfredo Sauce (I used DiParma Classico Four Cheese Alfredo Sauce)
1/4 c. Jarred Jalapenos, diced (We actually use more than 1/4 c. because we like things pretty spicy, but 1/4 c. will give you enough spice for those who don't like their food too spicy)
2 c. Monterrey Jack Cheese, Shredded
2 c. Pepper Jack Cheese, Shredded
1/4 c. breadcrumbs
1. Preheat Oven to 350.
2. Cook pasta as directed on box. (I cook it in an extra big pot so that I can just add the sauce to the pot and stir it all together in there without making too big of a mess... because just ask M, although I am a good cook, I am definitely a messy cook)
5. Add sauce mixture and 1 c. of each of the shredded cheeses to your pasta. Mix well.
7. Sprinkle top of pasta with remaining cheese and then sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
