Macaroni Pie

Scouring the freezer this evening looking from something for dinner, I came across the remains of my Mac ‘n’ Cheese.  “Great” says Stuart we could make it into a big Pasty… great my lovely Mac ‘n’ Cheese made into a pasty.  I did have some shortcrust pastry in the freezer (cheating I know!) and it needed using, so gave in and let him make it..

However, my brother-in-law Neil pipes up with – I am sure in Italy they have a pie with pasta in it.  Really? Is that not a little carb overload? A quick Google later, and we find he is right and now we had a recipe in our hands! Although this one had a completely different pasta filling.  So we freestyled it.

We rolled out the pastry and lined a rectangular dish, piled in the Mac ‘n’ Cheese, topped it with some lovely juicy, thinly sliced beef tomatoes, a sprinkling of parmesan (because we need more cheese).  Popped on the pastry lid and cooked  it in the oven for about 30 mins.

It looked and smelt great. Stuart then pipes up with – Shall I make some chips to go with that? Oh why not – everyone needs their carbs don’t they?
