Directions:
Cook pasta according to directions on box. Drain and return to pot and allow to cool. Shred cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack and mix together. Stir cheeses, with 3/4 of the container of Parmesan cheese, into the cooled pasta. Whisk together the eggs, butter, and milk. Spread the pasta/cheese into a casserole dish and pour the egg mixture evenly over the pasta. Gently shake the dish to distribute the egg mixture. Sprinkle the remainder of the Parmesan cheese evenly over the casserole. Toast the bread, cool and place in food processor to make bread crumbs. Combine oregano and garlic powder with bread crumbs and sprinkle over the casserole. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 for 45 minutes, until set. Uncover and cook for another 15 minutes to brown the top.

Personal Notes:
I grew up eating this New England style of macaroni and cheese, which my mother had learned to make from her grandmother in Massachusetts. After my mother died, I experimented until I was able to closely reproduce this casserole from my childhood. Now, my family has made it the centerpiece of our Christmas dinner, paying homage to our New England roots and continuing a tradition started by my mother.
