Macaroni with Ham and Cheese

This crunchy pasta dish is so easy to make and tastes really good!  It’s a different take on the old favourite Macaroni Cheese – not so rich because there is no cheese sauce – just cheese!  You can really add anything you fancy to this dish – I often add a punnet of chopped button mushrooms.  Another nice variation is stirring through two or three chopped hard-boiled eggs – depends what you have in the fridge! 🙂

Ingredients:

1 250 gram packet of macaroni – I use elbows

3 ham steaks

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 onion finely chopped

1 clove of garlic – grated

1 teaspoon Sambal Oelek  (A paste made from ground red chillies – I use Conimex brand)

1/2 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg

salt & pepper to taste

4 cups of grated cheese

Panko crumbs for the topping

Method:

Boil the macaroni as per instructions on the packet until just el dente

While the pasta is cooking, fry the onions, garlic & chilli paste in the olive oil

Chop the ham steaks into small cubes and toss in with the onion mixture

Season with the nutmeg, salt & pepper to taste

When pasta is ready, drain and mix thoroughly with the ham and onion mixture

Add in the grated cheese and stir though to combine

Tip this into a casserole dish and sprinkle generously with Panko crumbs

Bake at 200c (fan forced) for around 20 minutes or until crumbs are nice & golden

Bon Appetit!
