I like the crunchy crumb topping on this casserole, but you can leave it off if you don't care for a topping. I turned the broiler on for about 1 minute to brown the top a bit more. Plan to start this early in the day or cook the leeks a day in advance.

6. Macaroni and Cheese With Sausage

Depending on the heat of the peppers, this casserole can be pretty spicy. Use only 1/2 can if you'd like a milder mac and cheese, or use mild green chiles along with a smaller amount of jalapeno peppers.
