Mediterranean mac & cheese

The Chicago Tribune published a couple of mac & cheese recipes about two months ago, and I am just now getting to cooking them.  (Yes, I know the weather is warm, who cares, the mac & cheese was delicious.)

First up, Mediterranean mac & cheese.

The link contains the full recipe, which I followed exactly.  As you can see it is pretty complicated.  You are basically doing several things at once, at every step of the way:

  1. Heat the milk in a sauce pan to prepare for the roux, and also bake the garlic...
  2. Start on the roux (butter and flour) while you get the water boiling for the spinach...
  3. Remove the spinach and add the pasta, and also add the milk to the roux...
  4. Cook the roux and add the spinach, and cook the pasta, and remove the garlic.
  5. Throw everything into the roux.  Bake.
It turned out awesome - Dave had two helpings!  Yay for tasty pasta, veggies, and cheese!
