This was a yummy and easy dish – besides that there isn’t much to say! This is my study break from finals studying tonight. 🙂
Mediterranean Mac and Cheese
3/4 cup dry elbow noodle
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
2/3 cup feta cheese
1 cup milk
2 1/2 tsp unsalted butter
2 1/2 tsp all-purpose flour
2 tbsp black olives
1/2 cup canned fire roasted tomatoes
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400.
2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook to package directions. Drain and set aside.
3. In a heavy pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter and mix in the flour. Whisk together and cook for 30 seconds. Add 1/4 cup of the milk and whisk until smooth. Add 1/2 cup milk and whisk together. Cook for several minutes, whisking continuously, allowing the mixture to thicken.
4. Add the cheddar cheese and 1/2 of the feta. Stir well, allowing the cheese to melt. Add the salt, pepper, oregano, the remaining milk, fire roasted tomatoes, and olives. Stir together well.
5. Once the sauce is smooth, pour of the noodles and mix together well. Pour into a casserole dish and bake for 15 minutes.
