★ Cheese Macaroni ★

I love cheese! I made this as I was unable to forget the cheese & macaroni I had in the States. It's pretty high in calories, but tastes great! It can be made easily.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Cavatappi or fusilli, or any short pasta
300 g
Cheddar cheese
200 g
Onion
1/2
Shimeji mushrooms
1/2 bag
Bacon
3 slices
Flour
2 tablespoons
Milk
400ml
Salt and pepper
to taste
Butter
2 tablespoons

Steps

1. First do the prep-work. While the macaroni is boiling, mince the onion along the grain. Remove the stem ends from the shimeji mushrooms and separate. Cut the bacon into 1 cm thick slices. Cut the cheese into 2 cm cubes.
2. Cook the onion, shimeji mushrooms, and bacon in an oiled frying pan. Flavor with salt and pepper, and once the onions wilt add the butter and melt. Then add the flour, and cook until no longer floury. Then add the milk to create the white sauce.
3. Add the cheese to the finished white sauce and dissolve. Once it's dissolved add the macaroni. If you like you can bake for about 10 minutes in an toaster oven to make it aromatic. But it's still plenty delicious unbaked as well.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love cheese, so I tried making this with cheddar cheese, which I usually have in stock.
