Home-made mac & cheese might be the ultimate comfort food. I spice mine up a little with smoked papikra and hot mustard powder, and make a little crunchy topping with panko bread crumbs, butter and some good Parmesan cheese roughly grated. It’s easy to make. There are a squillion recipes online. The only danger is not having enough sauce for the amount of pasta, as that will result in a dry dish. Today’s batch was cheesy-fantastic.
We picked up the rapini at a veggie stand on the way back from our trip to McMichael Canadian Collection this afternoon. I cooked it up in a wok with some chopped up bacon and plenty of garlic. Perfect with the mac & cheese.
