random shit casserole

for dinner i boiled tricolor rotini and went about making an alfredo sauce. however, i was missing all the appropriate ingredients and there were a few random leftovers in the fridge that required using. so using the neufchatel cheese i happened upon [which i cant actually say outloud as i dont know the silly french pronunciation], 3 other random fridge cheeses, leftover chicken, and leftover roasted veges... i made this sauce. heres an approximation of what i did:

mac and ghetto alfredo sauce orrrr random shit casserole

2 T butter or olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 T flour
2 C soy milk
2 oz nefchatel cheese
1 C extra sharp cheddar
1/2 C parmesan
1/2 C pepper jack cheese

heat butter over very low heat and cook garlic until bubbly but not colored. add flour and several tablespoons of milk and mix very well. let warm, add more milk, and mix well until all milk is mixed in. DO NOT LET FLOUR LUMP IN MILK. i have ruined many an alfredo sauce like that. add each cheese mixing well between, until smooth and bubbling.

after the sauce was nice and bubbly i added leftover roasted orange moroccan chicken and roasted carrots, brussels sprouts, and red pepper. and unceremounsly dumped the noodles in a pan, the sauce on top, and then baked it at 375 until crispy on top.
