When I was a kid, my parents had a hard time making me drink milk. There were tons of running and hiding and I just wasn't really into it. As I grew up, I realized how important MILK is to a developing body. It's a great source of protein and amino acids. The fact that there's a lot of calcium in milk, makes it an added bonus and a must when it comes to your daily intake.
Aside from the different vitamins that it carries, it has niacin that supports proper brain function and improves cholesterol levels as well. So you see how important it is that you get and source your milk from the best. Let's check out REAL CALIFORNIA MILK AND CHEESE.
For me, there was only one sure fire way to get milk in my system. It was to make a MAC AND CHEESE SNACK. This would be my breakfast or early morning snack just before lunch. With the help of my mom, we recreated her take on the traditional mac and cheese with the help of REAL CALIFORNIA MILK AND CHEESE dairy products.
Here are the different ingredients that you will need:
2 CUPS OF REAL CALIFORNIA MILK
3 TBSP BUTTER
2 TBSP FLOUR
Different types of REAL CALIFORNIA CHEESE. (Mozzarella, Orange Cheddar Cheese) - All grated just before using.
2 CUPS of cooked pasta. Fusilli would be my personal preference.
3 Strips of Crispy Bacon.
The first step is to melt the butter in the pan. Afterwards, you could add the flour. Gradually stir in the milk over medium heat until it thickens. Slowly add the different cheeses. Stir them until they melt. I would suggest that you leave a bit of cheddar for the top layer later.
Once everything is settled, you now have your sauce. From here, you could introduce the pasta. Don't forget to mix it all properly so that each on is covered by this special and delicious sauce.
From here, you'll get to have cheesy and milky mac and cheese. Granted that you could already enjoy it as it is, my mom does a little bit more. She adds some cheddar on top and bakes it until it melts. If time is of the essence, you may use the microwave to melt the cheese.
You're then rewarded with something comforting and healthy. I know adding bacon may sound a bit too much for some but a little bit more flavor and texture won't hurt.
