      2 Tbsp butter, 2 Tbsp flour, 2 cups milk (anything but skim), 2+ cups shredded sharp cheddar. Make a roux, cook for 60 sec, add milk and whisk to remove lumps. Bring near a boil then lower heat and cook until it thickens enoughto coat the backof a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and add cheese. Taste and add salt, pepper and a little fresh nutmeg. Pour over 1 lb pasta (I like cavatappi) and half a bag of frozen peas. You can add sauteed mushrooms, tuna, whatever, but the peas are key. Top with panko. Bake for 30 minutes on 350.

  7. Miami Cherry Dump Cake recipe (unhealthy but yummy) I make this occasionally and it's super easy, similar to a cobbler and people love it....(more) 3-27-2013 7:18pm (6 replies)
    Ingredients: 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
    1 (15 ounce) can crushed pineapple (optional)
    1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
    8 ounces chopped walnuts (optional)
    1/2 cup butter
    Directions: In a 9x13 inch pan pour cherries and pineapple fillings. Cover with DRY cake mix (you may not use the whole box, just get a good even layer). Drizzle top with melted butter or margarine, you don't have to drench it, just cover evenly with how much you want. Sprinkle Walnuts on top if you want to. Bake in a 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven for 35 or 40 minutes or until golden brown. This recipe is very easy and you may find yourself using more or less pie filling and cake mix. I rec buying two cans in case you want more, just play around with how much you want. It's also easy to half the recipe. Serve with ice cream if you want :)
