How to make it

  • Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium sauce pan set over medium heat; melt the butter into the oil; add the lour and saute for a few minutes. Slowly add the milk and half and half; stirring until thickened. Slowly sprinkle in the cheeses, stir, allowing each addition to melt before adding the next one.
  • Meanwhile cook the macaroni in a large pot of boiling water; cook just slightly under the time indicated on the package (you want them to have a little bite to them as they will cook further in the sauce). Drain and keep warm.
  • Lightly oil a 3 quart baking dish. When the macaroni is ready, fold it into the sauce. Add the crab and gently fold into the mixture (be gentle, you want as much of the crab to remain in large pieces). Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper. Pour into prepared baking dish.
  • In another small bowl, combine the panko, oil and parsley. Mix well; sprinkle evenly over the top of the casserole. Place in the oven and bake 30 - 40 minutes, or until hot and lightly browned on top. Place under the broiler to further brown the top, if desired. Allow to stand at least 5 minutes before serving.

    You need another name for this. Calling it Mac and Cheese simply confuses the issue. May I suggest Pasta con Cinque Formaggio e Uggia(pasta with five cheeses and crab). Whatever you call this it's a delightful combination and will be excellent. RJ
