Baked Buffalo Macaroni and Cheese

1 box (12 ounce) macaroni
1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup of buffalo wing sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's Marinade & Sauce)
1 egg
1 cup grated mixed cheese (I used Colby Jack)
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Pinch of black Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pesto

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook pasta till al dente. While the pasta is cooking, in a separate pot, melt the butter. Stir in the milk, buffalo sauce. Simmer for about 10 minutes.

2. Temper in the egg. Stir in 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Evenly mix the pesto in with the pasta. Fold the macaroni into the mix then pour it into a casserole dish. Top with 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.

3. Remove from the oven and top with 1 cup grated mixed cheese. Bake for an additional 20 minutes. 

4. Let food rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
