I’m a huge lover of plain old macaroni and cheese! My husband, however, loves to have as many extra goodies as possible added in. So this cheesy pasta casserole was a hug hit and it’s really delicious too!

 

This is a perfect dish to use up some left over ham from Christmas or Easter.

Cook the pasta according to the package directions and drain.

 

At the same time, in a medium sauce pan, heat the oil over medium heat and add the garlic. Cook until fragrant, about 1 or 2 minutes.

 

Whisk in the milk and heat until hot but not boiling.

 

Add the cream cheese, salt, and cracked black pepper. Cook until cheese is melted and combined, stirring often.

 

Sprinkle in 1/4 cup of grated white cheddar cheese and keep slowly mixing until cheese is completely melted and combined.
