How to make it

  • Oven to 350 pre heated
  • Melt your butter in a large skillet (2 tablespoons for now)
  • Add the leeks and cook over high heat
  • for about five minutes and season with salt and pepper
  • cover on low heat till tender about 20 minutes
  • 'Meanwhile in another saucepan melt the remaining butter
  • Add half and half or milk and bring to a boil
  • Again, I am not adding flour
  • remove from the heat
  • and then add two cups of cheese and whish the cheese sauce till melted
  • In a large saucepan of salted water when boiled add the macaroni until nearly aldente
  • Drain well. Add the macaroni and cheese sauce to the leek greensand stir until combined
  • Transfer the macaroni to an 8 by 11 inch baking dish and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese
  • BAke for about 40 mintes till bubbling
  • Now
  • Turn the broiler on and broil the mac and cheese till golden brown on top for about three minutes.
  • Serve with Zinfadel wine
  • The earthiness of the manchego cheese makes this makes this mac and cheese dish especially good .
  • Now, for those not on low carb here's one I saw on the Iron chef.
  • Take some cheddar cheese gold fishes and put them on top and bake and the mac with the cheddar crunchy goldfishes comes out really good. They made a mac and cheese and used cheddar cheese goldfishes on top for crunch. I say it again but it was on iron chef and that's what they did. Incredible but very good and they got a good score, too
  • I was surprised to see it!!!
