Simply Delish - Macaroni and Cheese



Hi all,

Here's a recipe for you to enjoy from our good friend, Discoverylover. I know it's a little early but I won't be posting over the weekend as Whitesnake's brother and sis-in-law are due in town. I'm so excited!
I'll be back next week with a new recipe to share and the next addition of Coco's Animal Antics.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks again for the recipe DL.

Love KB


In her own words...DL's awesome macaroni and cheese




You'll need:

macaroni (or any other kind of small pasta you have in the pantry)

onion

flour

butter (optional)

milk

cheese

ham/salami

tomato





Put the macaroni on to boil in salted water. I'm not exactly sure how much I use, usually the packet will tell me about how much.



Grate about 3 handfuls of cheese (this is how much I use, but I like it really cheesy)



Dice the onion finely. Put a tiny amount of boiling water (or butter) into a pan (just enough to cover the bottom) and add the onion. Cook until most of the water is gone, or until the onion is cooked (if you have too much water you'll need extra flour). I got that tip from one of my Stepmums diabetic cookbooks, cos it's healthier than cooking things in butter/oil, and still tastes fine)

Take off the heat



Add about a dessert spoon of flour and stir until the onion is coated in flour. Return to the element.



Pour in milk slowly...again I'm not exactly sure how much I use, just enough that I think it will cover the amount of macaroni I have cooking.



Stir until it reaches your desired consistency.



Add about a handful of cheese and stir it in.



Take off the heat.



Dice up your ham/salami/tomato (all of the above!), or anything you would like to add, and add it to the sauce.



When the macaroni is cooked, add it to the sauce and stir. If you add the macaroni to the sauce then you end up with less wastage, and easier dishes to do :p



Put the macaroni mixture into a bakeproof dish and sprinkle the remaining 2 handfuls of cheese over the top. Put under the grill until the cheese is brown and delicious :D



I like to serve it with broccoli and salad for some semblance to a healthy meal.
