Trashless Trashy Mac & Cheese


  • Abbio Sauté Pan
  • Wood stirring spoon
  • Cheese grater or microplane 


    • Nothing! Just cook! 


    1. Place Abbio Sauté pan over high heat.  Pour the macaroni straight into the dry pan. 
    2. Add hot water to the pan to barely cover the macaroni. 
    3. Sprinkle your turmeric into the pan and stir as the macaroni slowly absorbs the liquid.                
    4. While pasta cooks, grate or chop your cheeses. 
    5. Check on your macaroni, add a little more hot water as it continues to be absorbed (like we’re managing moisture in a risotto).    
    6. Grab your tomatoes, pierce each one, and pile on a plate. 
    7. Drizzle them with a little olive oil and season with salt. 
    8. Grab a torch (I love saying that)!  Blister the tomatoes until they get a nice char.  If you don’t have a torch, you can just put them on a baking sheet under the broiler for about 1 minute. 
    9. Chop up the blistered tomatoes and set aside.        
    10. Give the mac a stir and sprinkle in the garlic powder.  
    11. Test a noodle, they should be about 80% cooked.  Season with a big pinch of salt. 
    12. Add your cheese to the mac and stir it until the cheese melts. 
    13. Mound your mac onto the plate, top with your blistered tomatoes, and indulge in being a kid again!
