Good morning! I hope that you enjoyed your weekend! It was beautiful here one day, so a walk on the beach was in order and the other was rainy and overcast so I stayed in and read a good book.
I know that this week is St.Patricks day and that we should be moving away from comfort foods and on to lighter, spring like food but I could not resist sharing this scrumptious Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Macaroni.
You may remember a few weeks back I posted about this Caramelized Onion, Ham and Cheese Quiche, I loved the combination of flavors so much I decided to try it in macaroni and it is delicious, tangy, sweet and cheesy all ant the same time!
Caramelized Onion Goat Cheese Macaroni
8 oz elbow macaroni
2 cups chèvre goat cheese
3 cups of milk
1/4 cup butter
11/2 tablespoons flour
1 cup caramelized onions
Grated cheddar for topping
Prepare macaroni or any pasta that you are using according to directions, then drain and set aside. In a saucepan melt the butter, add the flour and make a roux, then slowly add the milk stirring constantly. Add cheese and stir until incorporated and thick.
Pour the macaroni into a buttered casserole dish, top with caramelized onions, add the sauce and stir well. Top with grated cheese and bake on 350 for 15 minutes or warmed through.
I hope that you have a great week!
