  • 1 lb Delallo Whole Wheat Pasta Shells cooked very al dente
  • ¾ lb deli corned beef thinly sliced and chopped
  • 1 lb package fresh sauerkraut drained
  • 2 cups 1% milk
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoon white whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup thousand island yogurt dressing
  • ¼ cup spicy mustard
  • 3 cups shredded swiss cheese
  • 2-3 slices rye bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted


  • Preheat 350 degrees.
  • Spray a 9 x13 casserole dish with cooking spray. Add the pasta, corned beef, and sauerkraut.
  • In a large sauce pan whisk together milk, beef stock, and flour. Over medium heat cook liquid until it is steamy and bubbly, about 7- 10 minutes
  • Stir in salt, pepper, thousand island dressing, and spicy mustard. Continue to cook until it's heated through.
  • Stir in swiss cheese and cook until the cheese is melted. Continue to stir as the sauce cooks so none of the ingredients stick the bottom and burn.
  • Pour sauce over the ingredients in the casserole dish and stir until everything is combined.
  • Place bread and melted butter into a food processor and pulse until the bread turns into breadcrumbs.
  • Sprinkle breadcrumbs over the top of the macaroni and cheese, place into the oven, and bake for 50 -55 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  • Serve hot.
