Poor Girl Mac n’ Cheese

12 Sep

Yum, who doesn’t love mac n’ cheese? This looked prettier last night but you get the idea. When I make this I usually bake a big dish of it because I could and do eat it for days. Feel free to improvise on this too, change the cheese, add chicken, ham, peas, whatever you like.

A word about the measurements, basically I’m guessing. I tend to just throw things together until the taste good.

1 bag of small pasta. I used Fusili.

1 cup of milk. I used 1%.

1 bag

16 Oz of shredded sharp chedder cheese.

8 Oz. of shredded mozzarella cheese.

8 Oz. of munster cheese. I cut up a few pieces of sliced munster.

2 tbsp of flour.

6 tbsp unslated butter.

1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs

1 tsp nutmeg

parsley, salt, pepper

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Bring water  to a boil in a large pot, salt the water and then add the pasta. While the pasta is cooking make the cheese sauce. In a medium sauce pan combine milk and flour over medium heat. Stir with a whisk constantly. The milk will start to thicken. If it gets too thick add a little more milk. Once thickened take off the heat and stir in the cheese. When the pasta is done drain and add back to the pot. Stir in 3 tbsp of butter to the pasta then add the cheese sauce. Pour mac and cheese into a greased casserole dish bake for 15 min. After 15 minutes remove the dish and stir add the bread crumbs and continue cooking for 10 min. Then devour.

To make bread crumbs:

Combine remaining butter, bread crumbs and parsley in a saute pan and toast.

Now I have to go to bed. I’ll post the chicken fingers recipe tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend. xo
