Adieha's Baked Macaroni (Spicy Version)

I've made quite a few versions of Macaroni dishes. You can view all the recipes here - Macaroni Recipes.

Today I'm sharing the spicy version of Baked Macaroni.

This recipe serves 2 to 4 people, fit into one 3" x 9" baking dish.

Ingredients

Stage 1: Pasta
100 g Macaroni
1/2 onion (sliced)
1 small fried chicken (shredded)
3 pcs of chicken cocktail sausage (diced into cubes)
5-8 pieces of curry leaves
1 red chilli (finely sliced)
garlic powder ~ optional
cayenne powder ~ optional
salt and pepper
1 tbsp of oil

Method
1. Cook the macaroni until al dente. Cool the cooked macaroni under cold water. Drain and side aside.
2. In a small pan, heat some oil. Saute the onions until soften. Cook the chicken sausage. Add in shredded chicken, curry leaves, and sliced chilli. Season with garlic powder, cayenne powder, salt and pepper. Side aside to cool.
3. In a same pan (off the stove), mix the pasta with all the cooked ingredients from #2. Mixed them together.
4. Transfer to your baking dish. I'm using 3" x 9" rectangular ramekins.

Stage 2: Sauce
100 ml of fresh milk (use prego carbonara's tin)
1 tbsp of prego mushroom pasta sauce
2 tbsp of mayonnaise
2 whole eggs
100 g of shredded mozzarella cheese
garlic powder ~ optional
cayenne powder ~ optional
salt and pepper

Method
1. Mix all the ingredients listed above together.
2. Pour the sauce over the pasta.
3. Top of with a little bit more shredded mozzarella cheese.

Stage 3: Bake
1. Make sure to preheat the oven at 60°C during Stage 1. :P
3. Bake them at 180°C oven for 1 hour. The first half an hour; cover with aluminium foil to cook through. The second half an hour; bake until top is golden brown.
4. Serve hot!

baked to perfection.

The curry leaves has taken this dish to a whole other level. Just the right amount of flavour and spiciness. The curry leaves were actually leftovers from Nasi Kukus Ayam Dara, same goes to the fried chicken. The pasta were leftover pasta from Macaroni with Tomato Soup.

I was quite surprised that I was able to eyeball the exact ingredients for the sauce. It was exactly the right amount to fit in the baking dish, and the taste was perfect. The mayonnaise also made the dish extra creamy.

Probably should give this recipe a more appropriate name - Makaroni Bakar Campak-Campak Aje, as I was simply finding leftover ingredients in the fridge and adding it to this dish. :P

Definitely going to make this again!
