I topped with panko breadcrumbs before baking. My kids and I liked the texture and flavor of this mac n cheese. The asiago was expensive, though, and I'm not sure how much that flavor came through.
This was very, very bland. I made it exactly as directed, but cut everything in half for half a batch.
I call it the Adult Mac n Cheese this is awesome!
