Now I am talking, right?! This is a classic comfort food adored by all ages. Kids love plain mac n cheese. Adults go for more sophisticated version of mac n cheese with all kinds of add ins and toppings. Again, possibilities are endless for add-ins and toppings. This time around, I just kept it simple with a few slices of bacon as an add-in and bread crumbs for topping. No need of anything actually. Just keep it plain as the kids would eat and you will have a satisfying meal.
Here’s how I made it.
Macaroni N Cheese
2 cups cooked Macaroni (or any other small pasta)
1 cup milk
1 cup each shredded cheddar cheese, provolene cheese
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp flour
3-4 tbsp butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Garlic powder to taste
A few bacon slices, crumbled
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 tbsp Italian seasnonings
2 tbsp oil
Heat butter in a saute pan.
Add flour and cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat till raw smell is gone.
Add milk and bring to boil on medium heat.
Now add pasta, all the cheeses,bacon(if using), salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Transfer into a heat proof casserole.
Mix bread crumbs, oil and Italian seasonings.
Top pasta with moist bread crumbs.
Broil till topping is nice golden brown.
