➑️ 6 PRO tips for the garlic macaroni cheese recipe πŸ”Ž

  • Even if the macaroni ‘n’ cheese recipe can be made with any type of spaghetti or macaroni, I recommend using an assortment of pasta made from durum wheat because it has a firmer consistency and behaves much better when baked in the oven. It also absorbs sour cream much better, which makes the pasta more tender and juicy in the end.
  • From my experience, the best cheese type for cooking macaroni and cheese is Cheddar, but other matured cheese sorts lead to great results such as GruyΓ¨re, Emmental, Parmesan, Pecorino, and so on.
  • The amount of garlic used in the recipe depends entirely on your taste, however, I recommend using at least a teaspoon of granulated garlic or 1-2 grated garlic cloves for a slight garlic flavor. Usually, I double these quantities for a stronger flavor because I really love the garlic taste in food!
  • Don’t overcook the macaroni cheese because it will become dry, at the moment when the top of the cheese layer is golden, you know that the food is ready.
  • Allow a few minutes for the macaroni to soak up the sour cream and the top cheese layer harden a bit before serving.
  • Even if using fresh aromatic herbs is not mandatory, I still recommend adding them on top for more flavor in the plate.
