Today started off nice and sunny over here, but by the time I was returning home from work, it was just a miserable rain wetting me through and through, even when trying to carry an umbrella. Oh well, sometimes it happens, and in Britain it tends to happen a bit more than elsewhere, but at least I could stop by the local pub for a pint and warming up.
Once I arrived home I just wanted to have a comfy evening in and remembered that I had frozen a couple of ramekins of homemade mac 'n' cheese. A while ago I made a larger batch of this “healthy” mac 'n' cheese, but didn't get around posting the recipe. I call it healthy only due to the wholewheat pasta used, lack of cream and only a small amount of cheese added. These photos are still from the time when I first made the dish, therefore they don't look too gloomy. Now it turns out that I never wrote down the recipe. It wasn't very special anyway, so I try to summarise it below.
I used organic wholewheat gomitini from Sicily instead of macaroni. I added a little bit of fried onions and garlic to the cooked pasta, then some vegetable stock and cheese and breadcrumbs on the top. I think I seasoned it just with salt, pepper and basil. It was quite a nice weekday meal after baked and served with salad, so I can't complain to have this “ready-meal” today either.
How is your week going?
