We've put a Bothwell Cheese twist on a classic recipe. With an earthy and sharp profile, this macaroni & cheese is anything but traditional.
- Bring pasta water to a boil and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large frying pan, over medium heat, toast the panko bread crumbs until lightly browned. Allow to cool.
- Melt 2 tbsp of butter in a medium sauce pan. Add garlic and sauté for two minutes. Add one heaping tbsp of flour, stir to make a roux. Once lightly browned add 300ml of milk and slowly bring to a boil, whisking regularly. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside.
- Cook pasta following directions.
- Butter a large baking dish or individual baking containers.
- Once cooked, drain pasta and place in large mixing bowl.
