Mac & cheese with ham is a classic dish that couldn’t be absent on Singlemade. But I’m not sticking to tradition and making my own version! :-p
It stems from my time at uni. I wasn’t a typical student, neither partying-wise nor cooking-wise. No Aïki-noodles for me, I’d always make home cooked meals! Every two weeks I’d spend my Sunday mornings at the Anderlecht meat market looking for fresh produce: cheap, fresh and huge quantities. I had one of those grandma-strollers to haul back my catch and I had a huge refrigerator to store everything (a bit quaint, I know).
Pasta and quiches were my favourite dishes to finish up the leftovers in my fridge before heading out for a new batch. One day I had a couple of mushrooms left with some ham and herb cheese that had technically expired (but it was still good!). And voilà, Minnemade Macaroni was born.
It’s a basic recipe, as usual, but it’s incredibly versatile. Tip: it’s great with some leftover leek, courgette or tomato.
A word of warning: you’ll get garlic on your breath! 😉
The testers were short and sweet: fast and yummy!
Caroline added some extra vegetables because she’s a vegetable addict. 😉
