Macaroni and cheese is perfect supper food. It's a kids' favorite, and adults like it too. My recipe is simple and almost as quick as the boxed variety. Try this variation with ham, peas and shallots.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 recipe Creamy Macaroni and Cheese
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 large shallots, thinly sliced
- 10 ounces cooked ham, cut into small dice
- 1/4 cup dry vermouth
- 1 cup frozen peas

Heat oil in medium-high heat in a 10-inch skillet. Saute shallots until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add ham; continue to saute until meat begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Add vermouth and simmer until liquid almost evaporates, about a minute. Add peas. Stir mixture into macaroni and cheese. Serve hot.
