Old School Mac & Cheese Casserole
Old School Mac & Cheese with broccoli and some ketchup- 600 calories plus some more bites 200 testing and being STARVING waiting for hubs to get home.
beans and tomato- didn't eat these because I decided after one bite that they would be mo better with some hamburger meat and served like sloppy joes.
I made a bechmel sauce with 3 tb butter + 1 tb bacon fat + 4 tb flour, mixed/cooked for about a minute then I whisked in 3 cups of milk and cooked till thickend. Tempered an egg and added that as well.
To this add 1.5 bags sharp 2%, 1 tb spicy mustard, 1 tsp seasoning salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp dry mustard
cook one box of ziti noodles slightly under done because that was what we had (free after coupons too! ;))
Sprayed 9x13 pan with pam, added noodles, sauce and a bag of frozen broccoli and stirred and then because I was feeling the old school casserole look I crushed up some corn flakes and put those on top and drizzled 1 tb of melted butter over top. Baked at 350 for about 40 minutes.
Yummy although next time I will make the cream sauce and then just make a crust with the cheese (and less of it) instead cornflakes also it would be mo better with squash and onions.
Hubs and kid approved.
