Mexican Baked Macaroni (Macarrones yucatecos).
This is a typical mexican garnish, I make it every year and it is always a hit, easy to make and delicious.
500 gms Macaroni
Butter (as much as you may need)
Olive Oil (as much as you may need)
Tomato sauce 2 big cans
Grated Cheddar Cheese 2 cups
Breadcrumbs 1 cup
Preheat oven to 250 degrees
Cook the macaroni following the instructions of the package.
Place a saucepan in high heat and add four spoons of olive oil, when the oil is hot add the tomato sauce and cook for at least ten minutes or when the sauce changes color(you can season the sauce to your taste), add the salt. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a big bowl place the breadcrumbs and the cheese and mix them with your hands well.
Take a large oven refractory and grease it well with butter, then add a thin layer of tomato sauce, then a layer of macaroni, using half the macaroni.
Put some sauce on top of the macaroni so that it covers it completely, then add half the mixture of cheese making sure that it is spread evenly, take three spoons of olive and spread them over the first layer, then cut some small pieces of butter and spread them. Repeat the operation with the other half of the ingredients.
Bake in the oven until the cheese is a brownish color.
Let cool for five minutes then serve warm.
Note:Kids love this, just remember that you have to be very generous with the cheese.
You can also change the cheese you use, I prefer the cheddar because it sticks more to the original recipe. Recipes, fairies and more
