Hi and welcome to AlmazanKitchen!

Did you know that first mac and cheese dish was recorded in the famous medieval English cookbook, Forme of Cury, which was written in 14th century? In our version of dish it includesthree different cheese types in a sauce that is made from real milk, from a real cow… This cheese goodness demands some crunchy texture, so we also made some crispy bacon breadcrumbs from homemade smoked bacon.


Crunchy dressing:

  1. Prepare the ingredients and the cutting board.
  2. Slice into minor pieces 200g of homemade smoked bacon.
  3. Preheat your pan.
  4. Toss in the bacon. Cook till golden texture.
  5. Toss in 1 cup of fresh breadcrumbs, mix well.
  6. Smash and chop 4-5 garlic cloves into mushy consistency. Toss it into the pan. Mix well! Set the heat on low.
  7. Take handful of parsley, remove the stems and chop it. Toss into the pan. Mix well!
  8. Cook few minutes until ready. Put aside.


  1. Grate 200g of cheddar, provola and pecorino cheese.
  2. Make a dough for pasta. Form a penne from it. Boil the water, and cook it for 5-8 min.
  3. Preheat your pan.
  4. Melt 1 tbsp. of butter.
  5. Add 2 cups of real milk. Mix.
  6. Add 3 cheeses. Mix well!
  7. Cook until rich cheesy milk texture.

Final steps:

  4. Robbie

    Is there any listing for the method/directions in making the Mac & cheese?

    I’m not a chef or anything and I want to make sure I get this right. Just watching I feel its easy to miss something, or not know the proper temperatures?

    Do I need a cast iron pot?

    I just have a regular stove to.
