On Fridays during Lent, we did not eat meat, so my Mom would serve us usually fish. She would indulge us with Stuffed Clams, oh how we loved them. We would also have Clam Sauce and Macaroni, a most enjoyed one of mine and Gabriella's favorite. My Mom did not have too many other sauces in her repertoire for macaroni other than red. clam sauce, or cheese. If we were lucky, very lucky she would let me have butter. I loved butter on ravioli, still do. Of course, we would have grated cheese, never the one in the green can though, the real stuff from the Pork Store.
When Andrew started to cook for me, way way back, he would make Macaroni with Oil & Garlic, with grated cheese. It was heaven to me. I never, ever, ever had this before and I don't think my Mom ever even heard of it. Let me tell you from the first moment I put that deliciously wonderful macaroni in my mouth, I was hooked, in love, enthralled and have been ever since. So when asked if I want him to make it, it is a resounding.....aaahhh yeah....Andrew makes it hands down, absolutely, unequivocally THE BEST.... He also used his secret special cheese blend and that is just how he rolls.
We only had a little cheese left so while he grated, I did the garlic, I have to earn my keep.
A little slice of heaven and that is very good.
