brown Butter Mac N' Cheese

Recipe Courtesy Home Chef



5½ oz. Elbow Macaroni

2 Zucchini

2 Roma Tomatoes

2 oz. Grated Parmesan Cheese

4 fl. oz. Whole Milk

2 oz. Shredded Cheddar Cheese

0.45 oz. Flour

⅗ oz. Butter

¼ cup Panko Breadcrumbs



Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil

Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry

Prepare a baking sheet with foil and cooking spray

Prepare a casserole dish with cooking spray

Add pasta to boiling water and cook until al dente, 7-9 minutes. Reserve ¾ cup pasta water. Drain pasta in a colander and rinse briefly under cold water. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean. While pasta cooks, roast vegetables.

Trim zucchini ends, halve lengthwise, and cut into ½" slices on an angle. Core Roma tomatoes and cut into ½" dice. Place zucchini and tomatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss to coat with 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and sprinkle with half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for sauce). Roast until golden brown and tender, 15-18 minutes. While vegetables roast, make mac and cheese.

Add milk, flour, and reserved pasta water to pot used to cook pasta. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often. Reduce to medium heat and simmer until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon and draw a line through it, 3-5 minutes. Whisk in cheddar, mozzarella, remaining Parmesan, and ¾ tsp. saltuntil smooth and immediately remove from burner. Stir in pasta.

Add butter to a small pan over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to smell nutty, turn golden, and brown flecks appear, 5-6 minutes. Stir in panko breadcrumbs to coat and immediately transfer to a small mixing bowl.

Transfer mac and cheese to prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle panko-brown butter mixture on top and bake until golden brown, 7-10 minutes.

Reheat vegetables in oven 2-3 minutes if necessary. Serve vegetables alongside mac and cheese, family style.
