Einkorn Rotini Cheese Bake – Recipe
I remember a time, long ago, when macaroni and cheese, from a box, was a frequent part of my meals. I don’t see myself ever eating that again, but still I love the combination of pasta and cheese. Real cheese. Einkorn Rotini Cheese Bake satisfies our pasta-plus-cheese yearnings and makes a great side with grilled pork ribs or other meats.
Einkorn Rotini Cheese Bake
Young Living Einkorn Rotini Pasta, 9 ounces
1 cup whole milk
3 Tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic, diced
1/4 cup coconut flour
8 ounces shredded cheese, about 2 cups.
1 ounce crumbled blue cheese
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Method: Preheat oven to 350. Cook Einkorn Rotini according to package directions, then drain and set aside.
While rotini is cooking, melt butter in a saucepan. Add diced garlic and cook for 1 minute. Then add coconut flour and stir well. Stir in milk and combine well. When milk mixture is hot, stir in shredded cheese and crumbled blue cheese. Season with black pepper. When cheese is melted, place cooked rotini in a baking dish (I use an 8×8 inch square). Pour milk-cheese sauce over the rotini, stirring lightly. Bake uncovered 20-25 minutes, until heated through and bubbling. Serve hot.
The sauce will not be as smooth as sauces made with a roux of wheat flour and butter. Still, this coconut flour sauce tastes delicious!
A word about cheese: Use whatever you have. I have made this recipe with various combinations of shredded cheese, from pizza blend to colby-jack and it’s always good. The only cheese that didn’t work out well was an extra sharp cheddar. Tasted great but didn’t melt into the sauce very well.
Another word about cheese: The blue cheese makes this dish extra scrumptious. For super-scrumptious, try adding just a little sprinkle of extra blue cheese at the table. OH MY!!
