We've all been there. You forgot to take something out of the freezer for dinner. Now what? Well, last night it was macaroni and cheese. I went ahead and took everything out for dinner for the next few days so it can defrost and made pasta. What kid can resist pasta?
I could not remember where I got the last recipe I made...and it was delicious...so this was a hodgepodge of recipes and thrown into the oven. The kids loved it, hubby loved it and I was fine with that! Here is what I did:
Boil the pasta according to the directions on the box. (I use whole wheat noodles.) Mix 2 cups of milk and 2 cups of heavy cream with 1 cup of fontina cheese (freshly grated) and 1 cup of parmesan cheese (freshly grated). Add salt and pepper and about 2 teaspoons of flour. When the pasta is cooked, drain and add it to the milk/cheese mixture. Place into a glass dish and sprinkle with another cup of each cheese. I also love freshly grated nutmeg in this, but didn't include it this time around. Into the oven for 15 minutes and there you go. Fast mac and cheese.
I do need to find that other recipe, though. Although this was great...the other was AMAZING! :)
