This is what my mom would make for me when I was a kid. I used to love the taste and needless to say, I was very much keen to make the same for my boys.
What I took:
- 1 cup of macroni – boiled, strained and cooled.
- 1 cup of chopped veggies boiled ( you can also saute them in butter for a different taste)
- The veggies I took were chopped broccoli, carrots and peas
- 1/2 cup of mushrooms, diced and sauted in butter
- 1 cup milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cubes of cheese
I heated about 2 tbsp of butter in a pan and added 1 tbsp of flour ( maida) to it. Saute it till it gives a nice aroma. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add a cup of milk and two cubes of cheese that has been grated. Let it cook for about 3-4 minutes.
Preheat the oven for 4 minutes at 170 degree. Take a baking tin, a layer of macroni, a layer of veggies + mushrooms, a layer of sauce. I make at least two layers of each. Season with some parsley and basil.
Bake for about 15 minutes. Serve with sauce.
