Bake with Bizzy - Sun Dried Tomato Mac and Goat Cheese

Mac and Cheese is the ultimate comfort food, in my opinion, so when Hubby asked for it, for dinner, I didn't blink twice before I said, "Sure."   When, I came across a recipe using goat cheese, I couldn't resist.  I made a number of changes in this recipe and frankly as creamy as this was proved I made good choices.

Sun Dried Tomato Mac and Goat Cheese
(adapted)

1 cup low-fat milk
3/4 pound small shell shaped pasta
  2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons brown rice flour
1  cup grated Gouda cheese 
1 heaping tablespoon cream cheese
4 ounces  goat cheese
black pepper, to taste

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped 
1 cup sun dried tomatoes, snipped
1/2 cup  potato chip crumbs

Method:


Preheat the oven  to 400 degrees F. 

Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook pasta according to package directions, cutting off  2 minutes.  Drain and rinse, keeping 1/4 cup of pasta water.
Microwave milk for 45 seconds.

In a saucepan over med-low heat , warm olive oil . Add the flour and cook, stirring until the mix browns, about 5 minute Add milk, mixing, until thick and smooth. Add the Gouda, cream cheese and goat cheese and stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Pour the sauce over the shells. Toss in the tomatoes and cilantro.
Spray a baking dish and turn pasta mix into it. Top with potato chip crumbs and bake until bubbling and brown, about 15 minutes. Serve  hot.

    I like this recipe, although I'll have to drop the cilantro. I'll use basil instead

  4. I have never added brown rice flour to any of my bakes.. I wonder if that gives you the same texture as white flour ?? Just by looking at it, it looks perfect !
