Mac and Cheese Soup is a bizarre dish I tried during my recent trip to Melbourne. A thick, rich and creamy soup featuring fried ham and macaroni pasta, this dish is definitely not for everyday consumption, but suitable for an occasional treat - give it a go!
|Dry macaroni pasta||3 Cup (48 tbs)|
|Plain flour||1/4 Gram|
|Mild mustard||1 Teaspoon (I used Dijon)|
|Chicken stock||3 1/2 Cup (56 tbs)|
|Milk||1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|Whipping cream||1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|Grated cheddar cheese||5 Cup (80 tbs)|
|Diced ham||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
Wash and drain pasta. Add oil and mix well.
In a frying pan, sauté ham until browned.
Once done, transfer to a bowl and set aside.
Melt butter in same pan and add mustard and flour to it.
Mix well and add chicken stock. Whisk well.
Add milk, cream and stir well. Bring to boil and reduce the heat.
Add cheese and stir well until cheese melts.
Add pasta, ham and mix well.
Season with salt and pepper.
Serve and enjoy!
