New mac and cheese.

I got a new cookbook for Christmas. You should all go buy it. I started out easy, with a recipe that made stovetop mac & cheese. I used this amazing pasta shape I bought from Safeway a few months ago but hadn't used. It's like elbow macaroni on crack. I'm so excited to make all these delicious and pretty recipes from this book.
This is Leah's Greek Mac & Cheese, which involves V8 and jack cheese and provolone and feta.
Interesting tip to add warm milk to the roux to make the flour absorb faster. Also contains allspice and cinnamon and oregano. Mr. Barefoot says it tastes like a creamy Greek dish that he has had before, in Greece.
I covered it with parm and served it with peas and broccoli. It was delicious. You should try it.

  1. The creamy dish is pastichio, and I've had it at Greek diners here, not in Greece... I think it's the allspice and such in the sauce that are so distinctive.
