We were at the Birra Moretti Gran Tour last week and were massively inspired to cook up some delicious Italian food! La Favorita Delivereds’ mac & cheese with crispy pancetta is relatively new to their menu but already proving very popular! Treated with typical La Fav flare, an otherwise humble, yet much loved pasta dish has been elevated with fantastic Italian ingredients to make a deliciously moreish dish!

Ingredients

  • Macaroni Pasta – 180g
  • Double cream – 80ml
  • Parmesan – 50g
  • Mascarpone – 50g
  • Mature Scottish Cheddar – 100g
  • Cooked Crispy Pancetta – 60g
  • Croutons – 20g
  • Salt/Pepper and freshly chopped parsley to taste

Method

  1. Gently simmer the cream in a large frying pan or saucepan, stir regularly to ensure it doesn’t burn
  2. Meanwhile, put a pan with the macaroni pasta on to boil for the recommended time
  3. As the cream simmers away, add the parmesan and allow to melt
  4. Add in the mascarpone and stir
  5. Once the mascarpone has melted add in the cheddar
  6. Drain the cooked macaroni and add to the pan with the creamy cheesy sauce
  7. Mix all of the ingredients together thoroughly and bring back to the boil
  8. Serve the ingredients with crispy pancetta, toasted croutons, fresh parmesan shavings, parsley and season to taste
