I would love to make some macaroni with raw milk, butter, and cheese because I think my picky daughter might actually eat it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Anyone have a good recipe? Thanks so much!!!

I've always loved the "macaroni 101" from marthastewart.com - I believe it's her #1 requested recipe from the magazine... It reminds me of when my mom used to make it from scratch. Although, the milk and cheese would no longer be raw, right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

True about it no longer being raw..haha! I feel so silly. I just wanted her to eat some of it and was trying ot think of things that she might actually eat. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'd still like to make it though even though it won't have the raw ingredients. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Thanks for the recommendation! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Any other favorites?

I tried making macaroni and cheese using a roux, but the raw milk didn't thicken even though I heated it for a long time. Not sure if raw cream would work better.

Not a recipe per se, but I make mac and cheese quite a bit. I never measure anything, though, and I never make anything the same way twice.<br><br>
First, cook your pasta, drain, rinse/oil and all that. If you want to stick some veggies in, put some broccoli or spinach in with that. If you need to sneak them in I guess you could add them pureed to the sauce, though I've never tried that.<br><br>
Cheese sauce:<br>
Melt some butter in a saucepan, throw in a handful of ww flour. Mix together, don't let it burn. Pour in about a cup or 2 of raw milk, whisk well. Add whatever flavorfulness you like (salt, pepper, mustard, herbs, soy sauce, worcestershire, be creative) When it's almost simmering, throw in about 8 oz of your favorite cheese(s). Whisk until melted.<br><br>
Pour sauce over the pasta in a baking dish if you want to bake it. If not just stir the pasta into the sauce. I don't like it baked but that's the usual way to do it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> You can sprinkle breadcrumbs and more butter on top if you want.<br><br>
I think there is a benefit to using raw dairy for this. It won't be damaged nearly as much as pasteurization and homogenization would.
