This past Wednesday began the season of Lent for Christian followers. During Lent, Roman Catholics fast by abstaining from meat on Ash Wednesday and every Friday in Lent. This week I was going to prepare a macaroni and cheese recipe that I've used for years from a Betty Crocker cookbook. However, I had in my files a recipe from my neighbor, Pat, that I had at her house one holiday season. Instead of the unusual cheddar cheese, her recipe includes Swiss cheese, blue cheese and a bit of Parmesan. I've copied her recipe as given to me and noted how I prepared my casserole.
Perhaps it's the tang from the blue cheese, or the bit of lemon juice, but it's not your everyday macaroni and cheese. It was delicious, creamy, a bit of tang and a little crunch from the breadcrumbs on the top. Kudos to you Pat!
