Friday Bake Nights

The Big Mac On Campus

Ok so in all fairness, I might be on the G.I. diet, but that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to make some carbtastic recipes now and again!  A girl’s gotta find a way to vent out her carb frustrations somehow!

The only caveat is I just can’t eat any or very much of it. (Silent prayer of thanks goes out to Rick Gallop for allowing some form of complex carbs in this diet. Though in retrospect, this cheese laden one would be a ultimate no-no.)

Here’s what you’ll need for Sues Mad Mac’n’Cheese:

-Sue’s Sunday gravy (see earlier post for recipe) . I left the bacon out of this one and used roasted yellow, red bell peppers and onions.

-Cooked and drained Macaroni

-Some Parmesan. Easy on the parm tiger! too much and it’ll lace this mac n cheese with some serious sodium and salt.

-Some CHEESE!! Any kind will do. I used medium strength cheddar because that’s all we had on hand, but a white cheese such as swiss would have worked nicely too.

Let’s start:

Cook pasta as per instructions on package until al dente.

Add layer by layer of cooked pasta into glass dish scooping pasta sauce and mixing as you go.

Layer in cheese pieces in between layers.

Sprinkle with Parmesan and remaining cheese on top and set in oven to broil for about 10 minutes.

Because all of the ingredients are already precooked there is literally less than 20 minutes needed in prep work and cooking time. Works even better if you have some sauce on hand from previous pasta night dinners.

Let’s hope the bridal party enjoys this tomorrow, because this is what I’m bringing!

Keep baking :)
