Apple and Cheddar Penne Pie

Ingredients
2
tablespoons butter, softened
2/3
cup panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs)
3
teaspoons snipped fresh thyme
12
ounces dried penne pasta (3 1/2 cups)
1/2
cup chopped sweet onion, such as Vidalia or Walla Walla (1 small)
3
tablespoons butter
3
tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
2
cups whole milk
1/2
cup apple cider
2
3 ounce packages cream cheese, softened and cut up
1 1/2
 
Fresh thyme sprigs (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 10-inch springform pan with 1 tablespoon of the softened butter. Sprinkle sides of pan with 1/3 cup of the panko to coat; set aside. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon softened butter. Stir the remaining 1/3 cup panko and 1 teaspoon of the thyme into melted butter; set aside.
  2. Cook pasta 2 minutes less than directed by package directions; drain. Return pasta to pan; set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan cook apples and onion in the 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until tender. Add flour, salt, and pepper to saucepan. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in milk and apple cider. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low. Add cheeses and the remaining 2 teaspoons thyme; stir until cheese melts.
  4. Add sauce mixture to pasta; stir to combine. Spoon pasta mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle with reserved panko mixture.
  5. Bake, uncovered, about 40 minutes or until edges are bubbly. Let stand on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Remove sides of pan. Using a serrated knife, cut pie into eight wedges. If desired, top with fresh thyme sprigs.
