Home Alone Cooking 5: Mac’n’cheese

A bit of a departure from the healthy Gok and Ella show tonight, but teh cheese drawer really needed a bit of a tidy, and I’ve been craving macaroni cheese for ages.

Now, whilst it wasn’t totally wheat and gluten free, because of the flour in the sauce, I did try out a rice and quinoa fusilli.

I made the sauce with some very mature cheddar, and some Stilton.

I also added some steamed green beans and broccoli.

The pasta looked rather pale and white, and tool 13 minutes to cook.

But the end result was really satisfying – a good tasty sauce with the healthful oomph of green veg, and the pasta was very acceptable.  100g of it is a whopping 370 cals, though, and 75g carbohydrate.
