Harlem Designer Barron Wise’s Thanksgiving Mac And Cheese

mac and cheese and barron wise recipeBy Barron Wise and Harlem World Magazine

Ok, so Thanksgiving is finally next week, and in preparation I made one of my very favorite dishes, that’s right I made my soon to be famous backed Mac and Cheese.

Here are the Ingredients:

  1. Whole grain penne rigate and
  2. Rotini
  3. Butter
  4. Whole milk
  5. Jarlsberg
  6. Ricotta
  7. Smoked Mozzarella
  8. 3 pepper jack cheese

* Barron doesn’t measure, he cooks based on taste.

Directions 

  1. Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain.
  2. In a saucepan, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Stir in enough flour to make a roux. Add milk to roux slowly, stirring constantly. Stir in cheeses, and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and the sauce is a little thick. Put macaroni in large casserole dish, and pour sauce over macaroni. Stir well.
  3. Melt butter or margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs (with 7 grain bread) and brown. Spread over the macaroni and cheese to cover. Sprinkle with a little paprika.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Serve.

Nothing like great, hot Harlem food.
