Happy Saturday Guys...
I had some Cilantro Pesto in my freezer for a while and I was thinking what to do with that...If you want cilantro pesto recipe check this...
I thought of making some pasta with that which is just to toss some hot pasta over this...
But I went deeply and thought why not we can make some mac and cheese with pesto...And the result is this wonderful flavorful dish..
I really loved this dish a lot and it was so comforting...So here you go..Hope you all like it..
Macaroni-2 cup cooked
All purpose flour-3 tblspn
Cheddar Cheese-2 cup
Olive oil-2 tblspn
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Cilantro Pesto-1 tblspn

Heat oil in a kadai and add in the flour..Cook for 1-2 mins..
Slowly add the milk and mix well till it gets smooth sauce..Add in the pesto and cook for 3-4 mins.
Add in the cheese and switch off the flame..Season with some salt and pepper..
Throw in the cooked macaroni and mix well..
Make the topping by mixing some pesto with breadcrumbs and cheese and set aside..
Tip the macaroni in a baking pan and top it with the mixture..
