mac and cheese to play with Malcolm and Marie

If criticism is at the heart of Sam Levinson’s latest film with the “I Don’t Love You Too” part between the charismatic Zendaya and John David Washington, editorial Conbini food especially fell in love with the plate of instant macaroni and cheese prepared by Marie’s character in “Malcolm” in the first minutes of the film. The little blue box, filled with pasta and adorned with fluorescent orange powder, is the concentrate of an American childhood.

Therefore, we have prepared a more classic version. All you have to do is fire up James Brown and believe you are in an architect’s home overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

  • 200 grams dry pasta
  • 15 grams unsalted butter
  • 15 grams of flour
  • 30 centiliters whole milk

Boil pasta in plenty of salted boiling water. Meanwhile, over low heat, form a roux by whisking the butter and flour in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Once the flour smell is gone, add the milk little by little, stirring constantly, until you get a béchamel. Add pre-shredded cheese until melted. Season. Drain pasta and drizzle with cheese sauce. You can serve as is, or expand the recipe a bit by placing the pasta in a gratin dish and toasting the top in the oven with a dash of parmesan and breadcrumbs.
