We are so excited to be hosting our premiere Fabulous Friday linky party! We want this to be an opportunity to get to know you guys better, network, and see what you all are up to, loving, baking, cooking, etc or just think is Fabulous this Friday. Maybe it’s a new way you found to organize your cabinets, maybe it’s DIY necklace you did, maybe it’s a new appliance you love, maybe it’s your best money saving idea or grocery store bargain buys, or maybe it’s your fav recipe right now. We just want to hear from you guys and learn more about you! Please plan to join us every Friday to link up!

1/8 tsp table salt, for pasta cooking water
1 tsp butter
1/3 cup(s) fresh bread crumbs (I use panko)
3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese, divided
2 1/2 cup(s) fat-free skim milk
1/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1 cup(s) low-fat shredded cheddar cheese, sharp-variety
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat a shallow 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
Cook pasta in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water according to package directions; drain pasta and return to pot.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; add bread crumbs and cook, stirring often, until light golden, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer crumbs to a small bowl; stir in 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and set aside.
In same saucepan (wipe clean if necessary), whisk together milk and flour until blended. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking frequently. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and whisk in cheddar cheese, mustard, salt, pepper and remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese. Pour over cooked, drained pasta; toss to mix and coat.
Transfer to a baking dish and sprinkle top evenly with bread crumbs. Bake until bubbly at edges, about 20 to 25 minutes. Divide into 8 pieces and serve. Yields 1 piece per serving.
