TFF Mac and Cheese with Peas and Bacon



I know it's not new for you but this week I tried the mac and cheese signed by 'our' Tyler.
The recipes comes together in minutes and is very tasty too !
My variations have been : using olive oil instead of butter in making the bechamel sauce to keep our animal fats a bit lower, using pancetta and changing the cheeses because I don't have a clue of wher I could find cheddar cheese in Italy !
As you can see I didn't put the nice peas and pancetta all over because Carlo still doesn't want 'pieces' around but the reviews were great (even Carlo's), Anita said it was 'buonissimissimissimo !'. So, as always with Tyler, a fantastic dinner !!

LOL LOL I can very well believe you don't have clue of where to find Cheddar in Italy! LOL ...with all the "so much better" cheese you can get there, why the h--- bother!

Beautifully done, Natalia! I'm glad you enjoy our... classics! LOL

It is mac and cheese something like the nursery rhyme about "one sock off and one sock on, diddel diddel dumpling my son John"
Half peas and pancetta and half bare, I like it. I'm sure the Italian cheese you used was fabulous, cheddar can be over-rated.
