It’s the 19th of the month again and time for an easy recipe from my favorites, actually it was one my best friend and I abused during university years, and now the addiction has been transferred to my kids.
This is a basic Mac and Cheese recipe but I tend to use different shapes and try lighter versions to not be eaten up by any guilt.
Ok get your pots ready, I am sure most of you have these ingredients ready, it only takes 15 minutes, pasta cooking time included!
What you will need
1 package of Pasta of any kind, here I chose the extra large shell type called Paguri
1 tsp of Olive Oil
Mushrooms you can use fresh or canned, depends on what you have
300 ml Cream, here I used the light version for a lighter meal
8-10 Cheese slices, I used the light version, it is preferable you use real cheese if you don’t mind the calories
Fresh black pepper
A pot of boiling salted water
Boil pasta according to package directions the drain. In the pot drizzle the oil then add the mushrooms and sauté for a while, add the cream and stir on low heat. Start adding the cheese slices one by one and stir till melted. Drop in the pasta, grate some fresh pepper and Voila!
That’s it, if you have parmesan or fresh basil add them to your dish for additional zest!
