This is a Bavaria recipe for a cheesy pasta bake. Homemade spaetzle (small pasta twirls) are cooked in boiling water, then layered in a baking dish with grated cheese and fried onions.
I don't know anyone who doesn't want seconds or thirds when they try this. It's a gorgeous treat - the bacon is possibly a little OTT for something already so decadent but it really completes the dish. Enjoy!
Amazingly cheesy! This pasta bake can be made with your favourite small pasta shapes and is ready in just under an hour, so perfect as a midweek supper. Serve alongside a salad or seasonal veg for a complete meal.
After having this at a restaurant, I decided that I HAD to learn how to make it. Here is what I came up with.
A delicious macaroni cheese, which is the perfect comfort food for the cold winter nights. Macaroni is topped with sliced Cheddar and a white sauce, before being baked to perfection.
This is a great dish to throw together for the little-uns. Macaroni is baked with frankfurters in a cheese sauce. Simple and very satisfying.
Not to be confused with the traditional potato gnocchi, gnocchi alla romana are semolina dumplings, baked with cheese and butter. In this recipe, speck (Northern Italian bacon-style cured meat) is added to the mix, for a tastier version of this classical Roman dish.
Once in a while you need to make a big batch of mac and cheese, and once in a while you've got to make it the best it can be. Presenting 'the ultimate mac and cheese' (modest, I know). But really, I've attempted this dish a few times and this really is my best efforts. Soft and gooey, creamy but crisp, I really hope you give this dish a go. Any alterations you made let me know :) if not, enjoy!
Works well with pasta instead of macaroni - you decide.
I came up with this when I had very little in and it turned out to be a substantial, tasty meal.
