Rihanna: Mac-A-Rih’s (Macaroni and Cheese)

Rihanna told Esquire magazine that this was among one of her favorite recipes that she discovered completely by accident when her gas was shut off while she was trying to make macaroni and cheese. After trying the recipe with this texture and taste she has been making it the same way ever since.

Serves 4–6

 INGREDIENTS
• 450g small elbow macaroni
• Salt (to cook macaroni)
• 1 medium white onion, grated
• 1 red bell pepper, julienned
• 6 spring onions, sliced
• ¼ cup yellow mustard
• ¼ cup ketchup
• 1 ½tbsps Eaton’s Jamaican Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce
• 900g Colby-Jack cheese, shredded
• 1 cup water

METHOD

Follow the directions on the package and cook the macaroni and drain in a colander. Leave a little of the water back in the pot, maybe a quarter cup or so. Place the macaroni back in the pot and return it to the stove. On a low flame, add the onion, bell peppers and half the spring onions and mix together with a rubber spatula. Once combined, add the mustard, ketchup and pepper sauce and mix together. Add the cheese a handful at a time and incorporate. If the sauce is too stiff, add more water to loosen to  your desired consistency. Top with remaining spring onions and serve immediately.
