Categories     One Dish Meal

Time 40m

Yield 6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 1/2 lbs shaped pasta
water, to boil pasta in
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
2 1/2 cups skim milk
2 cups old cheddar cheese, low fat, grated
1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (optional)

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Bring water to a boil and add chicken bouillon. Cook pasta in water for 1-2 minutes LESS than the package instructs. You want it to be more al dente than what you would typically cook it to.
  • Meanwhile, add butter, flour, garlic powder, seasoned salt and pepper to a saucepan. Stir together until butter is fully melted. Whisk in milk and stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted. Set aside.
  • Strain pasta when done. Return to pot and stir in cheese sauce.
  • Spray 4 litre (4 quart) casserole dish and pour in pasta and cheese sauce.
  • Sprinkle breadcrumbs over top and bake for 20 minutes.
  • *** If you don't want to bake this, cook pasta to desired doneness, mix with sauce and serve.

Provided by Food Network Kitchen

Categories     main-dish

Time 30m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
6 ounces andouille sausage, diced
2 bunches scallions, thinly sliced
Kosher salt
12 ounces wagon-wheel pasta
1 bell pepper (red or green), chopped
1 tablespoon Cajun spice blend
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups whole milk
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes

Steps:

  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 1 minute less than the label directs. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta. Meanwhile, combine the olive oil and sausage in a large skillet over high heat and cook, stirring, until the sausage starts to brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in the scallions and bell pepper and cook until the vegetables are slightly soft, about 3 more minutes. Add the Cajun spice and flour and cook, stirring, 2 more minutes. Gradually whisk in the milk and continue whisking until the sauce is thick and smooth, about 5 more minutes. Add the pasta, cheese and reserved cooking water to the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium low and cook, tossing to coat the pasta in the sauce and melt the cheese, about 1 minute.

Provided by Nif_H

Categories     High In...

Time 1h

Yield 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 17

1 tablespoon chicken bouillon (do not need to use but boy it adds flavour!)
1 lb macaroni (or other shaped pasta)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups 1% low-fat milk (can use 3 cups of whole milk instead of milk and cream but I prefer this combination)
1 cup half-and-half (can use 3 cups of whole milk instead of milk and cream but I prefer this combination)
2 cups monterey jack cheese, shredded (can use Pepper Jack but I'm not a fan of the flavour)
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
1 tablespoon dried parsley
salt & fresh ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F Spray or butter a 9 x 13" baking dish.
  • To make macaroni: Add bouillon to large pot of water and bring to boil. Once water is boiling, add macaroni and cook until al dente (not quite fully cooked), usually about 4-5 minutes. Drain macaroni in colander.
  • To make sauce: While the water is heating and pasta is cooking, melt butter In a large saucepan, over medium heat. Once melted, whisk in flour and cook for about 1 minute, until the flour starts to brown a bit. While whisking constantly, add milk and then cream in a steady stream. Allow the sauce to come to a simmer but keep whisking so it doesn't burn!
  • Once the sauce comes to a simmer, stir in the 2 cups Jack cheese and 2 cups cheddar (don't use the cheese for the topping!), adding about a cup at a time. Stir constantly making sure each addition of cheese is melted before adding the next. Add 2 tsps Cajun seasoning, dried parsley, salt and pepper to taste and remove from heat.
  • Add the cooked, drained pasta to cheese sauce. Stir until macaroni is fully coated. Pour the cheesy mixture into the prepared casserole dish.
  • Prepare the Topping: In a small bowl, mix the melted butter with the Panko bread crumbs, 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning and black pepper, mixing with a fork until bread crumbs are evenly coated.
  • Sprinkle the macaroni and cheese with the remaining 2 cups shredded cheeses. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture on top of the cheese.
  • Bake until browned and bubbly, about 25 to 30 minutes. Allow to sit for a few minutes before serving. Hot stuff!

SHRIMP MAC AND CHEESE
