To me Fannie Farmer's recipe is the only "real" Macaroni & Cheese. It's from my 1946 edition of "Fannie Farmer's Boston Cooking School Cookbook". With time on it's side - this recipe is hands down the best for traditional, homemade baked macaroni & cheese - comfort food.
Please Note: If you use CHEAP CHEESE you will end up with a BLAND and FLAVORLESS DISH!
I've been making this recipe, from Southern Living, for years. Although there are already several recipes for Noodles Romanoff posted here on 'Zaar, this one includes olives, which provide a nice kick not present in other recipes. Make 6 side servings, or 4 main servings.
One of the "Best Food and Wine Pasta Dishes" of 2009. States, "This delicious pasta was the fastest adnd simplest to prepare of all the winners." Feel free to top it off with some parmesean cheese and/or some lemon zest!
This is my absolute very favorite macaroni and cheese recipe and I have a large collection of m/c recipes. Adapted from Southern Living. I don't make this very often because I could literally eat the whole thing and lick the dish clean.
This is an adaptation of a recipe that Guy Fieri showed on the show "Guy Off the Hook". We have made it a few times now and each time we are amazed at just how delicious this turns out. But, lets face it, how can you turn down the trifecta of Cheese, Bacon and Heavy Cream?
I've not seen any recipe like this here. Mom used to make it, and it is divine comfort food; chunks of cheddar and a basic Béchamel sauce, topped with buttery bread crumbs, make for an amazing dish! **Béchamel sauce technique updated, thanks Noo for pointing out the error.**
This is rich and delicious, but not too heavy. My whole family loves it! I use some pureed carrots to sweeten the sauce a bit. If it suits your taste and you don't have those available, you can put a teaspoon or two of sugar in if you like.
If you can't find lamb sausage, you can use ground lamb mixed with lamb sausage seasoning (typically fennel, mint, garlic, salt and pepper).
This fast-to-make pasta dish is a good way to use up leftover stale bread and, at the same time, to include a healthy green vegetable in your diet! Adapted from a recipe in 'The Australian Women's Weekly's Cooking on a Shoestring'. Adjust the garlic to your liking and don't include the lemon juice if you don't care for citrus flavours! You could, of course, use another vegetable in place of the broccoli and you could add onion. If you're not keen on cumin, omit it and add a favourite herb. I've also posted my adaptations of some other recipes from 'Cooking on a Shoestring': Recipe #365835 and Recipe #366217.
Entered for safe-keeping for ZWT. From Margaret E Walker at inmamaskitchen.com. Native to Australia is the yabbie or freshwater prawns or crayfish. If this fresh ingredient is unavailable, I would substitute prawns (shrimp). If condensed pumpkin soup is unavailable, I would substitute pureed pumpkin.
From The Best of Country Cooking Cookbook, c. 2003. I love mac 'n cheese, but with just the hubby and I, there is always way too much. I love that this recipe is just for two - though I'm sure it could be doubled or tripled to feed more. Cooking time doesn't include cooking the macaroni.
These noodles are wonderful if you need a quick side dish. They use ingredients you may already have in your pantry making them a great last minute dinner addition. The recipe comes from Canadian Living's Make It Tonight.
This recipe is from a KENYA AND TANZANIA site and is specifically a Swahili recipe. It is a starchy staple and they "serve it with curry or main dish". I have added a 3/4 cup of liquid since looking at Weekend's reviews. Posted for ZWT4.
