Pumpkin Bean Mac and Cheese

Mix bean puree, pumpkin puree and water in a saucepan (use the one you cooked the noodles in, saves dish washing).  Once the mixture comes together add the powdered milk, cheese powders, and seasonings.

Add about half the cheese and stir till it melts.

Return the pasta to the pot and mix well.  You want the cheese to get in all the hollows and nooks of the pasta.

Spread in a 9x13 inch pan or baking dish and top with the remaining cheese.

Lastly sprinkle on the bread crumbs and then spray liberally with cooking spray.  Adding a little oil to the bread crumbs helps them crisp up and gives the top a delectable crust.
