Best Mac and Cheese

Warning: I think I gained 3 pounds just reading this recipe for the first time.... But you better believe it holds true to its name.  Holy kaw.  Pinterest is making me fat.  Crap.

{What you need}
8 oz. cooked pasta
2 Tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
6 cups sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups bread crumbs
1/2 butter, melted
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Melt the 2 tablespoons butter in a large sauce pan.  Add the garlic and cook for about 2 minutes.  Add the onion powder and stir.  Whisk in the flour and milk and stir until it thickens a little.  Add 3 cups of cheese and stir until cheese is melted.  Add the cooked pasta and mix until it is all thoroughly coated.  Add the rest of the cheese.  Pour into a large baking dish and set aside for a moment.

Combine the bread crumbs, melted butter, and salt and pepper to taste.  Sprinkle evenly over the noodles in the baking dish.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until breadcrumbs are golden brown.  Serves up great with sliced fresh tomatoes, or as a side to steak.
