whole grain elbow macaroni
1 1/2 cups
shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 (15 ounce) can
Del Monte® Sweet Peas, drained
seasoned fine dry bread crumbs
grated Parmesan cheese
Used frozen peas instead. Added Gruyere, too. Great stuff!
VERY BLAND!!! Little to no flavor, cheese separated in the oven and was gritty. I was looking for a base recipe for mac and cheese, thought that the way this was seasoned sounded okay. Not! I even made this with full fat items and it did not help the taste. Needed more salt and a lot of flavor help for which I had no idea how to correct. I would never make this again.
YUM! The whole family loved it; I didn't change a thing...perfect the way it is. THANKS!
Delicious made it as directed
We made as directed, only using frozen peas instead of canned and adding some leftover prosciutto we had in the fridge. We enjoyed the mac and cheese because we aren't HUGE cheese fans and found that the final product wasn't overly gooey and meltey, but we still got the cheese flavor and texture. Definitely needed some extra salt though, which the prosciutto helped with.
Needs a bit more flavour, easy to make.
Add some garlic powder, salt and pepper
I used up the last of my Penn and Macaroni boxes, and started a new box of Shell Pastas to make this, and also used 3 types of (full fat) cheeses I wanted to use up. It was a bit challenging to get the Pastas cooked right, but it all turned out great! I even used up the last of a bag of frozen peas I had in the freezer. I only had 1% milk, besides those things I followed the recipe as written and was very happy with it. It is not a real gooey-cheesey recipe which is one reason I wanted to try it. I'd like to make it again as written to make it more guilt-free (if any Mac & Cheese can be considered guilt free? Sometimes you just have to have it!!) I posted a Pic, Thanks for sharing this!
The peas were just too much and made the entire dish taste like them. If I try this one again, I'll half the peas and use frozen--not canned.
