Baked brie is one of my favorite foods! I just love the flavor of that gooey cheese but I had never tried adding it to any other recipes.  Brie seemed like the perfect cheese to use in a pasta and thus, the idea for brie mac and cheese was born.  Pairing it with parmesan and gruyere sounded absolutely perfect and the breadcrumbs on top were such a nice touch of flavor and crunch.  Originally, this wasn’t going to be baked but it seemed meant to be so I popped the macaroni noodles, cheese sauce, and bread crumbs in a pan and baked it.  It really is the perfect easy baked mac and cheese recipe!

The brie cheese sauce is basically a cross between a mac and cheese sauce and alfredo sauce.  If you like either or are just a fan of brie, then this is the meal for you!
