Cracked black pepper.
Soft salted butter.
Shredded cheddar cheese.
This is how to make the creamiest macaroni and cheese just in your kitchen, all you need to do is following the steps below:
First step: To start, you need to cook the macaroni according to the package instructions, and just keep in mind that it is preferable if the pasta is ”al dente”.
Second step: Next, in the meanwhile, prepare a traditional béchamel sauce; just melt the butter, and add in the flour, whole milk, table salt, and cracked black pepper, finally the nutmeg, and stir well until everything is incorporated.
Third step: If you want to use finely grated cheese, you may add it to the sauce as soon as it has through cooking and stir until it is fully melted and evenly distributed throughout.
Fourth step: And, once you’ve added it to the spaghetti, it’s ready to serve!
Fifth step: Alternatively, you may spoon the pasta into a gratin dish, fill with sauce, and top with an extra 25 g of cheese. In this scenario, the meal must be baked at 180 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes before serving. Take pleasure in your lunch!
Prepare the pasta according to package directions, transfer to baking dish, and let cool fully. Wrap securely with aluminum foil and place in the refrigerator 1-2 days ahead of time.
Any leftovers should be refrigerated immediately and firmly wrapped. This method of storing mac and cheese will keep it fresh for 3-4 days.
When you want to reheat, mix in a little amount of milk or cream and microwave partly covered with plastic wrap until warm. As it reheats, give it a good stir every few minutes.
