Mac and Cheese Pizza Cups

Ingredients

  • 2 cups large macaroni noodles
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup pizza sauce divided
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup colby jack cheese shredded
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1/2 cup mini pepperoni slices

For the crumb topping:

  • 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • freshly chopped parsley for garnish if desired

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a muffin tin with non-stick spray, set aside.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the macaroni until al dente, so they are still a little firm (about 8 minutes). Drain and place in a large bowl.
  • Add the butter and egg to the bowl and stir to combine. Stir in the milk and 1/2 cup of the pizza sauce. Add the garlic, Italian seasoning, colby jack cheese, 1 1/2 cups of the mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices and stir to combine.
  • Scoop the macaroni noodles into the prepared muffin cups, so they are piled high (I got about two ice cream scoops into each one).
  • Use the remaining pizza sauce to spread on top of each muffin cup, followed by the remaining mozzarella cheese. Combine the bread crumbs, melted butter and salt in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Sprinkle the tops with the crumb mixture.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes to until the tops are golden brown. Let cool slightly before running a knife around the edges of the muffins to remove from tin. Enjoy!
