Submitted by Meghann (meghann1046); Adapted from here: http://whatsinlaurenstummy.blogspot.com/2012/01/baked-sriracha-mac-n-cheese.html
8 oz. elbow macaroni or small shells
1 small onion, diced
2 garlic cloves., diced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup cream
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. ground cayenne
1/4 cup Sriracha
2 cups shredded Cheddar Jack
salt and pepper
1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
Cook pasta, set aside.
Sauté garlic and onion in butter until tender.
Whisk in flour, then milk, then cream.
Mix in cayenne and mustard.
Remove from heat and mix in Sriracha and cheese.
Add pasta and mix well. Salt/pepper to taste.
Pour in a greased casserole dish and top with breadcrumbs. Bake for 15 mins at 400 degrees. Broil for the last few minutes to get the breadcrumbs nice and crunchy.
Use more or less Sriracha to get it to your liking. I also added ham to DH’s serving.
