Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cook pasta until just before al dente, set aside.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add flour and stir to combine. Cook the flour for 1 minute then add the milk whisking as you pour. Continue to whisk as the mixture comes to a boil. Turn the heat to medium low and continue to cook for 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Wipe out the skillet.

  • Pour mixture into a 9" square casserole dish and sprinkle with einkorn breadcrumbs.
