Baked Macaroni and Cheese to Kill For

Baked Macaroni and Cheese to Kill For


Ingredients
2 cups uncooked elbow Macaroni
3/8 cup Butter
1/2 cup Flour
1-3/4 cups Milk
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Pepper, freshly ground
1 tsp. dry Mustard, freshly ground, if possible
1-1/2 cups (8 ounces) diced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided
4 oz. Mozzarella Cheese, cut into strips
1 cup Ricotta Cheese
1 15 oz. can whole, peeled Tomatoes, drained and quartered (or, if large, cut into 6ths)
1 cup diced Ham


Method


Preheat oven to 350.

Cook macaroni in salted boiling water according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Pour into a 2-quart baking dish.

In a saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour. Cook and stir for one minute. Gradually stir in milk. Add sour cream, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and mustard. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until sauce bubbles and thickens. Stir in half of the Cheddar cheese until melted.

Toss macaroni with remaining Cheddar cheese, the mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, tomatoes, and ham. Pour sauce over this macaroni mixture and mix thoroughly.

Bake, uncovered, for about 1 hour, or until bubbly and brown. Yield: 6 servings

Wow! this looks really good. Middie, salivating is a word, and I do it often when I read some of these great recipes.

Rainee, I went to check my dry mustard and it was hard as a rock... can I put in regular mustard? how much do you think I should put in if I am able too? Also, Have you used fresh tomatos with this? I was going to make this for dinner and add some chicken chunks to this and maybe some peas.

I'd say give it a try and see what results you get. That's one way recipes get tweaked, and then wa la you have your own recipe.

We'll be looking forward to your report.

Mustard, Dry

1 tablespoon prepared mustard can be substituted for 1 teaspoon dry mustard.

Mustard, Prepared

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard plus 2 teaspoons vinegar can be substituted for 1 tablespoon prepared mustard.
