Contrary to popular belief, a «Macaroni and Cheese» dish is unknown in Italy. However we do have several cheese sauces for pasta. Here is a spicy version of this comfort-food classic.
|170 g||gluten free/wheat free shells||2 1/2 cups|
|2 tsp||butter, unsalted||9 g|
|1/3||dried chili peppers, minced||0.1 g|
|2 tsp||cornstarch||5 g|
|1/3 cup||milk, partly skimmed, 2%||85 mL|
|1 tsp||whole-grain mustard||5 mL|
|2/3 cup||Cheddar cheese, grated||50 g|
|4 tsp||Parmesan cheese, grated||4 g|
Before you start
Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.
- Start cooking the pasta.
- In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced chili pepper and sauté 1 min, then add the flour and cook 2 min with stirring. Pour in the milk and bring to a boil. Add the mustard and grated cheeses while stirring until the sauce is smooth.
- Put the drained pasta back into the pasta cooking pot, add the sauce and mix well. Serve in the warmed dishes.
