Ian always loves good old macaroni cheese. There was one day that I decided to add some blue cheese to the sauce. He absolutely loved it and told me if I ever make macaroni cheese again, please make macaroni with blue cheese sauce again.
macaroni (250g), bacon strips (50 g), sliced button mushroom (100 g), shredded roast chicken (100 g), oven roasted capsicum strips
Cheese sauce: 1 table spoon of olive oil, 1 table spoon of flour, 1 and 1/2 cup of milk, 1 and 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, 1 cup of blue cheese.
What to do:
- Place a large pot of salted water onto boil. Add macaroni and cook until al dente.
- While pasta is cooking, into a frying pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add bacon strips and cook until crispy. Then add mushroom and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Finally, add shredded roast chicken and oven roasted capsicum strips, cook until heated through and set aside.
- To make a blue cheese sauce, heat 1 table spoon of olive oil in a small sauce pan at medium heat. Add 1 table spoon of flour, stir quickly until oil and flour is well combined. Stir in milk, reduce heat and stir constantly until milk start to thicken. Then take off from heat, add cheddar cheese and blue cheese, stir until cheese is melted. The cheese sauce should have smooth consistency.
- Combine macaroni, blue cheese sauce, and sautéed chicken, bacon and mushroom together, serve while warm.
