Caprese Macaroni & Cheese
-1 Box Pasta of your choice -1/4 C Flour
-1 C Mozzarella
-1 C Milk
-2 C Grape Tomatoes
-2 T Pesto
-1 T Butter
-Salt, to taste
-Cook pasta. Once completed drain and let cool.
-Preheat oven to 375.
-While pasta is cooling, make a roux. Put a burner to medium heat and allow the butter to melt, slowly whisking in flour at the same time. You will get a brown-ish paste. Add the pesto and continue to stir.
-Add half of the milk and continue to stir to prevent scalding the milk. Then mix in half of the cheese.
-Once this has solidified mix in the other half of the flour and cheese.
-Fold in the pasta, using a spatula to mix. Take off the burner.
-Halve your tomatoes.
-Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray. (I recommend using a 9x9 but you can for sure do this in other sized pans as well.)
-Add the pasta and tomatoes to the pan.
-Cook for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Enjoy!
