For the cooking at home assingnment I decided to make homeade mac and cheese using leftover pasta in my frige. Privously the night before my mom had made some alferdo pasta for dinner, but she had cooked to much pasta which we then put the pasta in its own little container. I also had some left over lays chips that were going to go stale soon, so I decided to use them ontop my mac and cheese as a cunchy element. First, I started making a roux, which included butter sligtly brown, flour and milk. Then once that was all smooth I added in to different delicious cheeses, which were cheddar and mozzarella. Once everything was combined the cheese sauce was complete and it looked so good. Next, I added in my leftover pasta into the sauce and mixed then together. Then I poured the mixture into a glass casserole dish and added on the bread crumbs, lays potato chips and exrtra cheese. I put it into the oven and when it came out it looked awesome there was bubbly cheese and top with crisp bread crums. For this recipe I used this link here https://www.momontimeout.com/best-homemade-baked-mac-and-cheese-recipe/ . If I were to make this dish again I would change nothing, I was so, so, so good! There was only only thing I had to overcome I did not have heavy whipping cream, so instead I had to subsititute it for milk, which worked really good it just made the mac and chhese a little more runny. My favorite part of this recipe was me eating the mac and cheese at the end I loved it so much. I am most proud that I was able to create a new dish using leftovers!
Today I decided I wanted to make homemade mac and cheese. I looked in our pantry and saw we had a little bit left of this swirly type of pasta so that’s what I used. Then I grabbed so shredded cheese and non-sheredded so I could have two different types of cheese. I began boiling some water and I new to add in the pasta when I could hear the roaring sound of the bubble bursting at the surface. Once the pasta was nicely cooked I strained it and added in my soft and silky cheese along with some milk and creamy butter. I stirred it until it was all combined and had a nice stringy cheese pull to the noodles. I put it in a pan and covered it with more cheese and some bread crumbs. I took the mac and cheese out when I could hear the bread crumb sizzle and the cheese and tope were nicely coloured. I did not use a recipe and had so much fun making this by just eyeballing everything. I’m so happy it turned out great and tasted so delicious. I had to overcome almost cutting myself on a cheese greater though because my hand slipped, but after that everything went smoothly. I could definitely see myself making this dish again, the only thing I would do differently would be to add more cheese next time.
