I've Grown Tall but Haven't Grown Up Macaroni and Cheese

Submitted by: CDHORBACH

Introduction

Macaroni and Cheese with the same great taste you loved as a kid, with an added maturity that neon cheese powder just can't match. Macaroni and Cheese with the same great taste you loved as a kid, with an added maturity that neon cheese powder just can't match.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    14.5 ounce box of multi grain rotini noodles
    1 tbsp Shallots, chopped
    1 tsp garlic, minced
    1 cup 1% Milk
    2 tbsp flour
    8 wedges of Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb Cheese
    1 cups of 2% Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided
    2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
    1 cup sliced Red Onion
    3 oz Proscuitto
    1 Roma Tomato, diced
    2 tbsp Olive Oil

Directions

1. Cook the noodles according to the package directions omitting the fat and salt. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large pan. Add shallots and garlic, cook until soft. Add milk and cheese wedges. Simmer until cheese is melted. Add flour and whisk until a thick sauce forms. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of cheddar. Stir sauce until cheese melts. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Mix the noodles, thyme and cheese sauce together. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Put the pasta in the pan and top with the remaining cheddar cheese. Bake in the oven for thirty minutes, or until cheese is lightly brown.
4. While the pasta is cooking, heat the remaining oil in a small skillet. Saute the proscuitto and red onion until the meat is crispy and the onion is translucent.
5. Top each serving with diced tomato and the proscuitto and onion mixture. Serve hot and enjoy!
