Skip the tomatoes and anchovies and it's gluten-free mac n' cheese.
Corn Shells n’ Cheese with Sun Dried Tomatoes
The sun-dried tomatoes mixed with the mascarpone and a bit of cream make a beautiful pink sauce, which is a kid-friendly alternative to vodka sauce.
1 lb corn shells
4-5 sun-dried tomatoes
8 ounces mascarpone
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
1 cup tightly packed grated parmesan cheese, plus more to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 sprig of thyme to garnish
1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and salt generously. Drop in pasta.
2. Meanwhile, add a tablespoon of butter to a large frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for a minute until soft and fragrant, being careful not to burn the butter. Add the cream and milk and cook for a minute. Allow to rest.
3. In a large blender, add the garlic/milk/cream mixture along with the mascarpone, parmesan, sundried tomatoes and anchovies. Blend until combined.
4. When shells are al dente, drain and add to a baking dish. Pour the cheese mixture over the shells and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Thickly grate a layer of parmesan over the shells, and add a sprig of thyme on top.
5. Pop the shells under the broiler for about a minute or two until the cheese begins to bubble and brown. The top will be nice and crusty and the shells will still be gooey and delicious.
After a day of testing in the goop kitchen, GP figured out a way to get the lean turkey tasting as delicious as the pork. Roast the legs at a high temperature before braising to crisp the skin and intensify the flavor.
This quick and easy hummus is a great base recipe, and you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen. It's great as is, but feel free to dress it up with different spices, blend in roasted beets, or top with toasted pine nuts and chile oil.
