Mac n Cheese n Peas

This recipe was filed under "must-try way to make food I love." I finally tried it and OH MY it was yummy and oh so easy.

First, I put 2 cups of dry rotini in the rice cooker with 2 cups of chicken broth.
While it cooked, I shredded 2 cups of cheese, a mix of cheddar and monterey jack.  Food processors make life better.
The macaroni is done when there is no more liquid in the rice cooker.  Mine just popped up from "Cook" to "Keep Warm."
At that point, I added some milk and the frozen peas and put the top back on to melt the peas.
The last step was to mix in the cheese.  The heat and steam of the "keep warm" function melted it perfectly!



  1. I have a homemade mac'n cheese that I haven't posted yet - I love your curlie noodles, a great dish for all ages!

  2. Lately I've been putting peas into lots of dishes, but never thought about putting it into Mac'n'Cheese.....brilliant idea. I need to try it next time.

  3. A special thanks for visiting my humble blog. I enjoyed reading this post because you use your rice steamer in an unconventional way :) I have become a follower; love to find young cooks who are adventurous and think outside the box! Please consider following me, as well. Happy kitchen experiments!

  4. For the resistance training element of things, if you want to firm up your body fast,
    getting a set of adjustable dumbbells is the way to
    go. Start a jogging or walking club with some neighbors.
    Don't set goals like "I will miss Ten pounds inside my first week".

    condition-which is to be expected when someone literally eats your face.
    Along the various groups of survivors the doctor manages to outlive,
    he finds that the infection may have been started by a food processing plant and an
    additive that is found in nearly every food and beverage.

    Myth 1: One needs a good exercise to get 'lower abs'. Preventing repetitive stress injuries through exercise will
    also help prevent this kind of problem on the job.
