Tangy Blue Cheese and Creamy Fontina, tossed with Cajun Steak and fresh pasta make this one of the tastiest and hearty Mac & Cheese dishes you will ever have! It’s mouthwatering delicious!
Funny, but not so funny, and very embarrassing story about the comings of this mac & cheese. So if you’ve been following along for any length of time, you’ll know how we were living in a hotel for five months. (Thank God that’s over.) Well, since all I had were two little burners and a very small room, the smallest bit of smoke would set off the fire alarms. Plenty of people in our building did it all the time, but I managed to make it the first 4 1/2 months of being there without the alarms going off. Until this mac & cheese.
The ventilation was awful in there. When I cooked the steak, it smoked. Not bad, but you know, enough for a small hotel room. Well on an army base, (or probably at any hotel), if the alarms go off, the firemen come. A whoooooole lot of them. And since it was the middle of the day, no body else was there except for me, my kids, and a few housekeepers.
Needless to say, when the firemen showed up, there was no question about who set off the alarms. Then they had to go into our room, after evacuating us from the building, and step over the obstacle course of toys that my kids had every where, to ‘air it out’. It wasn’t even that bad.
But the entire encounter was so embarrassing, I was afraid to use the stove the remainder of the day.
Thank goodness I got over that fear quick, fast, and in a hurry though! Because this Black and Blue Mac & Cheese. Holy mac! (pun intended) As I’m typing this, my husband is asking me to make it again. Easily, one of the best mac & cheese dishes we’ve ever had. He said it first, about 349 times, before I finally agreed. Mouthwatering. I couldn’t stop eating it, right from the pan.
The Cajun spice on the steak and in the cheese sauce, gives this dish the most incredible kick! The creamy cheese sauce, including blue cheese, make it a bit tangy and perfect. It’s so hearty, comforting, and absolutely mouthwatering. Make it.
