A question about a recipe: Martha Stewart's Macaroni and Cheese

1253c96e cde3 44e2 8e7b 205bc80ff62f  092711 food52 88

I have a question about the recipe "Martha Stewart's Macaroni and Cheese" from Genius Recipes.

I notice the dish you use for the final baking is quite shallow. Is that essential? Just how deep can this 3 qt. casserole be before it's too deep and can't use all those lovely croutons?

The deeper it is the creamier the inside will be. The ratio of crispy crusty to creamy depends on the depth of the pan. I think the hal deep aluminum throw away pans are perfect size.

Any 3-quart casserole-type baking dish should work. You can definitely go with one a bit deeper than the gratin dish in the photo -- we actually had extra filling that we baked off in a separate dish with very sparse topping. We just really had our hearts set on using that pan!
