Casseroles Cheese Recipes with Pictures Vegetarian

Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower

I got this recipe from Real Simple magazine. I love baked macaroni and cheese and this seems to be a more healthy version using multigrain pasta and cauliflower.  It’s delish!

12 oz. multigrain elbow macaroni
1 head cauliflower, roughly chopped
4 slices multigrain bread, torn
1/2 C. flat-leaf parsley, chopped
3 T. olive oil
Kosher salt and black pepper
1 onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 C. grated extra-sharp Cheddar (6 oz)
1 1/2 C. reduced-fat sour cream
1/2 C. percent milk
1 T. Dijon mustard

  1. Heat oven to 400º F.
  2. Cook the pasta according to the package directions, adding cauliflower during the last 3 minutes of cooking time; drain.
  3. Meanwhile, pulse the bread in a food processor until coarse crumbs form.  Add the parsley, 2 tablespoons of the oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and pulse to combine; set aside.
  4. Return the pasta pot to medium heat and add the remaining tablespoon of oil.  Add the onion, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, just until soft,  5 to 7 minutes.  Mix in pasta, cauliflower, cheese, sour cream, milk and mustard.
  5. Transfer to a shallow 3-quart baking dish, sprinkle with bread crumbs, and bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

I got this recipe from the Food Network website (link).  I didn’t follow the directions exactly as you see them below.  Here are the changes I made to the recipe: instead of three eggs I used just one, and instead of using a slow cooker I baked mine at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. It was excellent!

2 C. uncooked elbow macaroni
4 T. (1/2 stuck) butter, cut into pieces
2 1/2 C. (about 10 ounces) grated sharp Cheddar cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 C. sour cream
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C whole milk
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Boil the macaroni in a 2 quart saucepan in plenty of water until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain. In a medium saucepan, mix butter and cheese. Stir until the cheese melts. In a slow cooker, combine cheese/butter mixture and add the eggs, sour cream, soup, salt, milk, mustard and pepper and stir well. Then add drained macaroni and stir again. Set the slow cooker on low setting and cook for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

Jean’s Cheese Spread

This recipe comes to the Bartholomew family from Jean Riordan, Leta’s mother-in-law.

6 hard-boiled eggs
2 rounded T. Miracle Whip
1 T. sugar

Put everything in mixing bowl, except eggs. Mix with electric mixer until blended and fluffy. Add eggs and mix until eggs are the size you want. If too thick, can add more Miracle Whip. Have at room

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a 6- to 8-quart pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, until veggies are tender. Do not drain.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

This is an easy and tasty low-fat version of mac-n-cheese.

8 oz. elbow macaroni
2 C. skim milk
2 T. unbleached flour
1/4 tsp. ground white pepper
2 tsp. dry mustard
2 C. non-fat or reduced-fat
Cheddar cheese, shredded and divided

Cook the macaroni al dente according to package directions. Drain, rinse and drain again. Set aside. Place 1/2 cup of milk and all of the flour, pepper and mustard in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake until smooth and set aside. Pour the remaining 1 1/2 cups of milk into a 2-quart pot, and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add the flour mixture and cook, still stirring, for about 1 minute, or until thickened. Reduce the heat to low; add 1 1/2 cups of the cheese and stir until the cheese melts. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the cooked macaroni. Coat a 2-quart casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray and spread the macaroni mixture evenly in the dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese over the top and bake at 350º for 30 to 35 minutes, or until bubbly around the edges. Remove the dish from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

Makes 6 servings.
