While most people are jumping on the eat healthy and get in shape band wagon, I'm making my first real post in the new year about what might be the epitome of an unbalanced meal: macaroni and cheese and pie. The pie is a pear and strawberry pie.
The macaroni and cheese was inspired by clearing out leftover cheese in the fridge.
16oz box of elbow pasta, cooked
3 cups of white sauce
3 cups mixed of Gruyere, cheddar, mozzarella, and Parmesan
Top with 1/2 cup of buttered bread crumbs (this time I tried Progresso's herbed panko)
6 Tbs butter
6 Tbs flour
3 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste
Pear & Strawberry Pie Filling
5 ripe pears peeled and sliced
approx 3/4 of a lb of strawberries sliced
3 Tbs tapioca
3/4 cup of sugar
