BOT Mac and Cheese! Bacon, onion and tomato.
I make a basic bechamel sauce.
1 Stick of butter
1/2 C flour
4 cups of milk
Melt your butter add your flour and cook 1-2 minutes whisk in milk and cook until it thickens.
Add 1 1/2 C of your favorite cheese for this I use smoked gouda
1Tbls of Dijon
A Dash of hot sauce
1/2 Tbls of Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Add the above ingriedents to the sauce
1lb of pasta I use a whole wheat shell usually, I had to settle for farfalle tonight.
4 slices of cooked crumbled bacon
4 green onions chopped, green only
12 cherry tomatoes cut into quarters
When the pasta is done add it to the cheese sauce, stir in bacon, onion and tomato. Pour into an 8×10 baking dish. Bake at 375 for 15min. Stir 1 cup of panko, 3Tbls of parmesan and 2 Tbls of olive oil together and top the macaroni. Bake 15 more minutes.
I prefer this a stovetop mac and cheese. The fresh tomatoes and green onions with the crisp bacon bits, its perfect!
