As I was traveling home yesterday I saw several church signs inviting community members to attend their Valentine Banquet this weekend. If you're needing a special Valentine dish for your family or church dinner, you might try this tasty Better Homes and Gardens macaroni and cheese recipe I found a couple of weeks ago at http://www.recipe.com/. I just had to give it a try tonight and it was deliciously cheesy!
Three Cheese Macaroni
12 ounces dried elbow macaroni (2-2/3 cups)
1-1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter,melted
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper(can substitute black pepper)
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces American cheese,cut into 1/2 -inch cubes
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese,shredded(2 cups)
2 ounces mozzarela cheese,shredded (1/2 cup)
20 rich round crackers,crushed
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. In a large pot cook macaroni according to package directions;drain. Return to pot.
Add milk,melted butter,pepper,and salt. Stir in cheeses. Transfer to a greased 2-quart casserole.
Bake,uncovered, for 15 minutes. Carefully stir mixture. Sprinkle with crushed crackers. Bake 5 minutes more or until crackers are browned and mixture is just heated through (don't overheat or mixture will curdle). Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Makes 8-10 side dish servings.
