What better vehicle for the major nutrition boost in microgreens than a creamy bowl of Mac n Cheese with pancetta. Onion microgreens add a subtle onion garlic flavor.
Ingredients (Serves 2):
1 serving of cavatappi or any pasta
1 tablespoon salted butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup of (any percentage) milk
1/2 cup (2oz) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped onion microgreens
Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat
Cook pasta according to instructions on the box
In a small saucepan, sauté pancetta until brown and crispy. Remove from pan and set aside
Melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and thicken for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the milk, whisking out any lumps. Keep whisking constantly until mixture thickens for 2 to 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in cheese until completely melted. Add salt, pepper, and any additional spices
Once pasta is ready, mix it together with the cheese sauce
Top off with onion microgreens and serve immediately. Enjoy!
