Macaroni and Béchamel Sauce
Béchamel Sauce:
Ingredients:
- 1/3 Cup Flour
- 4 Tablespoons Butter
- 3 Cup Milk
- Salt to taste
- Sprinkle of Nutmeg
Directions:
1. Cook flour until it becomes a golden color. This step gives the flour a nice nutty flavor
2. Add butter, melt over low heat flame and mix well with flour
3. Add the milk very gradually and blending thoroughly
4. Add salt and pepper to taste stir constantly to prevent the mixture from becoming lumpy until it reaches the desired thickness. You may add more milk depending on the consistency you are looking for.
5. Add the nutmeg

Macaroni:
- ½ KG Pasta of your choice
- Boil according to cooking directions on the bag

Meat and tomato sauce filling:
-½ a pound ground beef
-1 large diced onion
-Cooking oil
-1 teaspoon each of oregano and basil
-Fresh parsley, optional
-Salt, black pepper, allspice to taste

Cooking directions:
-Mix the cooked beef with tomato paste, hot water, add the herbs and cook for about 20 or until the sauce has cooked taste.
-Add the meat sauce mix to the pasta
-I usually microwave it for about ten minutes, to give it this cooked taste.

Assembly of the dish:
1- In the baking pan, mix the half of the macaroni with 1 cup Béchamel Sauce- I add more than one cup, I like it creamy and full of the sauce flavor.
2- Add the mix of the tomato paste and the ground beef over the macaroni.
3- Keep on making layers of the macaroni, béchamel sauce and meat until you are done with them.
4- You may sprinkle the top with grated cheese of your choice.
5- Bake in a 350 Fahrenheit degree oven until the edges and the top turns golden brown color.
6- Serve hot.

HAHAHAA .... My Bechamel is waaaaayyyyyy better :) :)
But, thanks for the cooking idea, I think I'm making bechamel the real yummy way.

The bechamel is really prepared ddifferently. But, if this suits you. Then ... you have to taste mine to know how much batter it is .. :)

Yummy, ya Summer! Was there a measurement for the tomato paste, or just until it looks right?

Neat idea about browning the flour. That, plus the nutmeg, is what must make your recipe stand out.

Plus, it's from you. Miss you around your blog. Hope all is well. :)

Kinzi, as you know, i do not measure when i cook, but i add enough tomato sauce for the dish to make it look right, lest say about couple of large tablespoons of paste, diluted with water.
Nutmeg is a major ingredient that is usually added to white sauce always. just a hint makes a huge difference.
Thanks for coming by. i have been well but busy a bit. :)

Hala, the recipe is an easy one. here you go, you will need:
-Kusa, about half a kilo or more, depending on your family size.
-ground meat (beef or lamb) cooked with diced onions and your favorite spices, such as salt, black pepper, allspice and so on.
-Bechamel sauce, according to my directions in the video.
directions:
-cut Kusa lengthwise, empty the inside from the pulp.
-cook the meat the usual way you always cook it, with oil, onions and spices
-lay the kusa in the pan, stuff with the ground meat mix.
-add the bechamel sauce
-bake in the oven for at least half an hour on 180 degree oven
sprinkle with cheese on top to melt and become golden brown in color.
i hope this recipe will work out for you. please email me if you need any more details.
Thanks for coming by.
