This recipe is super easy to make. You just have to boil your pasta, add some cheese and bake. I really love the taste. I know, you can just go to the supermarket and buy a can or a box of ready to eat Mac&Cheese. But, trust me, my happy pixels, this recipe is ready in almost no time and it’s better than the store bought version.
While pasta is boiling, or when you’re baking it, you have time to make some stuff at home. Or you can sit and relax while waiting. Have you had a look at our happy reading challenge? Reading a book while your food is in the oven is so great!!
Ingredients (serves 2):
- 2 1/2 cups pasta
- 1 1/4 cup grated cheese (use different kinds of cheese for a better result, like gouda, emmental, parmesan….)
- 2 tablespoons butter+ a bit more to grease your baking dish
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup milk/heavy cream/soy cream
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Mix pasta with butter.
Preheat oven at 180ºC
Grease a baking dish or mold with the remaining butter (you can use oil, too). Cover the bottom with pasta. Cover pasta with grated cheese. Repeat, making layers with both ingredients, until you’ve used all the pasta and cheese. My last layer was cheese.
Blend the egg and milk together. Two alternatives are heavy cream for a richer version and soy cream for a lighter version. Pour this mixture all over your pasta. Sprinkle some dry oregano on top, if you want.
Bake for 20-25′, or until the top is golden brown, but not overcooked. Serve warm.
