Successful and Unsuccessful Experiments
Today I tried making a variation of mac n cheese from scratch. I cooked a cup of twist egg noodles, drained them and lets them sit in the drainer while i made the sauce. I used mozzarella, Colby jack and straight cheddar to make a little over a cup of grated cheese. I put a 1 1/2 tbsp butter in the saucepan I used for the pasta and then added the cheese and poured in a little half 'n' half, around a half cup. The sauce looked like a decent consistency, but when i added the noodles it was sticking too much, so i added more cheese, then i realized that'd just make it more thick so i added more half 'n' half. I just accepted what i had made and bowled the noodles.
I had essentially made egg noodles with melted cheese, with garlic and basil. I've been cooking occasionally for a few months, this is my first time trying to make a pasta dish. What did i do wrong? I'm not looking for a recipe, just the basic guidelines that i obviously didn't follow when trying this out.
