Holy Macaroni!

February 20, 2010

One of my favourite quotes,  ‘Holy Macaroni’ is the inspiration behind this dish because it tastes heavenly and its so simple to make. Why should all recipes be stuff we will never actually cook, I have loads of books I never cook from. Everyone loves this and the bacon and broad beans make a great addition to a retro classic. When we all get in from the cold it gets eaten up so quickly and the ingredients are cheap and easy to get hold of.

You will need:

500g Macaroni Pasta                        Cheese Sauce (shop bought is easier)

4 rashers of Smoked Bacon                 1 tin of Broad Beans

2 large handfuls of grated cheddar  and a cup of bread crumbs.

  • Pre heat your oven to 180c
  • cook the pasta per the packet instruction
  • Whilst the pasta is cooking grill your bacon till it’s really crispy, mmmm, resist eating the bacon.
  • grate your cheese and bread crumbs  (using a bit french bread is good, the day after its been bought it always go rubbish).
  • Drain the pasta and return to the sauce pan, pour over the cheese sauce, season with salt and pepper, add the drained beans and with a pair of scissors snip the bacon into the pot. Mix the loveliness together.
  • tip into an oven dish and top with cheese and bread crumbs, bake until golden and crispy.
  • If your like me try not to burn your mouth on the cheese.
