Baked Mac n’ Cheese
IngredientsRotini pasta (1/2 pk; use whatever you have)
1/3 c butter
5 tbsp flour
3 c milk (add to desired consistency; may not use it all)
2 c. sharp cheddar cheese
Salt (to your taste)
Black pepper (to your taste)
1 tsp cumin powder (for color)
2 tbsp fresh cilantro
DirectionsIn a pan, melt butter and add flour 1 tbsp at a time until it resembles crumbs. Next, gradually add milk, stirring continuously until smooth. Add cheese gradually while continuing to stir.
Add salt, pepper, cumin and nutmeg. Once you’ve reached your desired texture, reduce heat and cover.
In a separate pot, boil pasta. Once ready, drain and pour sauce on top, then mix until well coated. Transfer to a baking dish, top with more cheese and cilantro. Place in the oven on 400 for approximately 20 minutes or until cheese becomes golden.
Remove from the oven and serve. ENJOY!
