I got an email from Carnation Milk telling me about some recipes on their site, so I took a look and decided to try their Mac and Cheese recipe. It's pretty simple, but quite rich. It says it serves 6.......I don't think so, 3 adults yes, maybe four with a salad and some garlic bread.
2 cups uncooked macaroni or rotini pasta
1 can (370ml) Evaporated milk
3 tbsp All purpose/plain flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard, I didn't have dry, so just used a squirt of regular mustard
1/4 cup light cream cheese (I just used regular)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
black pepper (optional)
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside. Put flour in pan, and whisk in a little of the milk, to make a paste. Slowly add the rest of the milk, whisking all the time.
Add the salt, mustard and the cream cheese and continue whisking until all mixed in, and thickened. I cut the cream cheese into little pieces to make it easier to mix in.
Remove from heat, stir in cheddar cheese until melted.
Stir pasta into cheese sauce.
