I ran my eyes down the ingredients on this recipe and I came across ‘honey’. First thing I did was check if I was making dessert! It's definitely not dessert, it’s a pasta bake! This wonderful recipe of cheesy macaroni was sensational with honey!
Three onions thinly sliced!? WOW, I always times my recipes by 3, that’s a lot of onions in this dish!
I couldn't fault this recipe. It was superb! Who would have ever thought these ingredients would worked so well in a pasta dish. I do like honey so I ‘accidentally’ added a little more than the specified amount and it was delicious. I seasoned with pepper as per instructions on the recipe but I couldn’t bring myself to add salt. I think I made the right decision.
Easy and delicious ! It's definitely a winner. If you have a processor to thinly slice the onions, then this dish will take no time to prepare. And if you don't, add it to your christmas list, no kitchen should be without one!
