I bought cacao pasta for the first time. I wanted to do macaroni and cheese pudding, but, my son is having a no cheese period so I thought to use mascarpone so he wouldn’t realize that there is cheese in it. My mom’s recipe is with fresh cheese.
This macaroni and cheese pudding is your regular Mac and cheese…but with a twist. This recipe promises and delivers a special dessert.
My macaroni and cheese pudding has a few “tricks”:
- I didn’t use regular cheese but mascarpone.
- I used honey instead of sugar.
- I used cacao pasta.
- 250 g cacao pasta
- 1 egg
- 250 g mascarpone
- 1 cup yogurt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Homemade vanilla extract
- Butter for coating the baking tray
Boil the pasta as directed on package, and then drain and rinse in cold water. Pour a little oil and stir well. In a bowl beat the egg, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Add mascarpone and then pasta and mix them well with a spoon. Coat with butter a baking tray. Pour everything in the tray and bake on medium heat. Remove when pudding gets a brown crust.
You can serve it hot or cold. Enjoy!
