Easy Recipe & Life Tip: Cooking to Beat Homesickness…
sometimes a little taste of home is all you need to chase the blues away! Macaroni & Cheese Directions: Preheat the oven to 180º Centigrade. Melt 6 tablespoons of butter in a non-stick saucepan on low heat. Add the flour and cook while stirring for about 3 minutes. When the butter and flour mixture is a pale yellow add the hot milk, a little at a time, until incorporated and you have a thick sauce. Add the cheddar cheese and heat until melted. Turn the heat off. Mix the cooked pasta with the cheese sauce and season with salt and black pepper. Grease an oven dish with a little oil. Sprinkle half the Parmesan on the bottom of the dish and top with macaroni. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the breadcrumbs and dried mixed herbs and stir to coat. Sprinkle the buttery herby breadcrumbs on top of the macaroni & cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, take the dish out of the oven and sprinkle remaining Parmesan on top. Put back in the oven for another ten minutes or until the Parmesan topping is golden. Ingredients: 8 Tbsp butter 6 Tbsp flour 31/2 cups hot milk Salt and ground black pepper 3 cups of cheddar, grated 1 cup of parmesan cheese, grated 1 lb of macaroni, cooked 1/2 cup breadcrumbs 1/2 tsp dried mixed herbs
