We have a log of soft goat’s cheese I need to use up before the end of the month.  So, I was looking for something to cook with goat’s cheese. I ended up deciding just to make up my own recipe. Damn was it good. As Nick said, the flavor has a lot more depth than a regular mac ‘n cheese. Easy too!

Miri’s ‘easy peasey’ Fancy Mac ‘n Cheesy:

4 tbs healthy margarine product or butter

4 tbs flour

2 cups milk or stock or mixture

Salt, pepper

4 oz goat’s cheese

a few chunks of frozen spinach

8 oz pasta

  • Cook the pasta in salted boiling water
  • Meanwhile, make a white sauce by browning the flour in the melted butter over low heat
  • Gradually add milk, mixing well
  • Cook until thickened
  • Dump in spinach and goat’s cheese (cut into chunks)
  • Mix until cheese is melted
  • Drain cooked pasta and mix into sauce
  • Place in oiled pan and cook at 350F until golden and bubbly (about 20 minutes)
  • Eat!  :-)
