Macaroni and Cheese

I used to think macaroni was specially for salads (covers face)...Never imagined it as a delicacy on its own but apparently i have been wrong. I came across this recipe which happens to be a classic America dish and i decided to try it out made my own modifications here and there, tried to make it look colourful and tasty. I kid you not it was a blast...It would make a great family dish, kids would love it too...Try it out...Wink

  • macaroni (elbow type)
  • butter
  • cheese grated - cheddar
  •                         parmesan
  • milk
  • cream (optional)
  • flour
  • mustard
  • 1 egg
  • red pepper diced (optional)

  • green pepper diced (optional)
  • mushroom chopped (optional)
  • carrot diced
  • bread crumbs
  • salt
  • nutmeg
  • black pepper
  • cayenne pepper

3. Add a little cream. Add the mustard. Break the egg in a plate and take little from the gravy and add to it. Whisk well. Pour the egg mixture into the gravy and stir. Add the carrot, green pepper, red pepper, yellow pepper and mushroom.
4.Stir in half of the cheese and stir. Add black pepper, nut meg, cayenne pepper, worcestershire sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add salt if need be.
5. Pour the macaroni into the sauce and stir.
6. Grease and oven proof dish with butter. Pour the mixture in and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top with breadcrumbs. 
8. Bake until the cheese has melted and the top is golden, it may take between 20 -25 minutes.
9. And it is ready to be served....Enjoyyyyyyyyyyyy
