No - boil mac cheese (Fideos al horno con queso y panko)



I found this recipe in Bon Appetit and I've already done three times, especially the twins love it and my husband also.

A really delicious recipe!
Skip a step when you making mac and cheese by not precooking pasta.
Instead mix the dried pasta with a thinner bechamel sauce!
I done this yesterday and had not letfovers!











Ingredients
(6 servings)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter,divided
1/4 cup all purpose flour
3 cups whole milk
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
500 grams macaroni or other pasta
2 cups sheredded cheese divided
2 garlic cloves chopped
1 cup panko (or breadcrumbs)
2 tablespoon chopped parsley or basil

Method

Preheat oven to 180° c ( 400 F)
Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium  heat.
Add flour, cook whisking constantly for 1 minute.
Whisk in milk and 3 cups  water.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook, whisking often until a very thin  glossy sauce forms, about 10 minutes.
Stir 1 tbsp of salt and 1/2 tsp pepper.
Remove sauce from heat.
Toss pasta and 1 1/2 cup cheese in a 13x9x2" or other shallow baking dish.
Pour sauce over (pasta should be sumerged do not stir) and cover with foil.
Bake until pasta is almost tender about 20 minutes.
meanwhile melt remaining 1/4 cup butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic , panko or breadcrumbs and parsley and toss to combine. Season with salt.
Remove foil from dish.Sprinkle with remaining cheese and then add panko mixture.Bake until pasta is tender and edges are bubbling and top´is golden brown., about 10 minutes longer.
Let sit 10 minutes beforer serving.

En español

Fideos con queso y panko
al horno







Esta receta es de Bon Appetit, y la he hecho varias veces pero primera vez que le tomo fotos!
Les encanta a los mellizos y al papá tambien.
Lo que tiene de especial es que no hay que cocinar los fideos antes.
Solo despues se ponen en una fuente de horno y se bañan en una salsa bechamel más bien liquida. Y al horno.
Quedan super ricos!




Ingredientes

1/2 taza de mantequilla
1/4 taza de harina sin polvos
3 tazas de leche entera
1 cucharada de sal
1/4 cucharadita pimienta negra molida
500 gramos de fideos tipo macaroni u otro
2 tazas de queso desmenuzado o rallado
2 dientes de ajo picados
1 taza de panko (o pan rallado)
El panko lo he comprado en el jumbo y el Lider
pero tambien en tiendas asiáticas
2 cucharadas de perejil picado 
o albahaca picada .

Preparación

Precalentar el horno a 180°c.
Derretir la mantequilla en un sarten grande a fuego medio suave.
Agregar la harina, cocinar revolviendo por un minuto.
Agregar la leche y 3 tazas de agua. Mezclar bien.
Cocinar a fuego suave unos 10 minutos hasta tener una mezcla suave  o sea una salsa blanca liviana.
Sazonar con sal y pimienta y probar.
Reservar.
Aparte mezclar los fideos con el queso rallado y colocar en una fuente alargada de horno.
Vaciar la salsa blanca sobre los fideos. No hay que revolver. Deben quedar sumergidos. tapar con aluza foil y llevar al horno por unos 20 minutos.
Mientras tanto en un sarten derretir la mantequilla a fuego suave. y agregar el panko o pan rallado.
Agregar el perejil picado o la albahaca y revolver bien.
Sazonar con un poco de sal.
Retirar la fuente dfel horno, sacar el aluza y repartir la mezcla de panko sobre los fideos.
Horneaar por unos 10 minutos hasta que se vea dorado y la pasta tierna.
Dejar reposar un rato antes de servir.
Bon appetit!

  27. I've often wondered whether uncooked pasta would work in the oven Gloria. I must say, your Macaroni and Cheese sure looks good and if it keeps disappearing, then it must be delicious too!!! I'll have to give this a try:)
