Macaroni and Cheese

This homemade macaroni and cheese recipe is courtesy of dear friend Alison and though my kids initially did not like the “homemade version” they now LOVE IT. I like making this recipe in my Le Creuset braiser as it can go from stove top right to the oven.

Tomato Sauce with Meatballs

Because this sauce is so divine the recipe makes a double batch.  A double batch can be made by each guest but requires a 7 litre/7 quart slow cooker or dutch oven.  In a group setting it is suggested that 2 guests make one recipe just divide vegetables and sauce between 2 pots and guests can roll their own meatballs. This recipe works well started in the morning and cooking in the slow cooker for 6 hours on high or simmering on the stove for 3 hours.  Flavours are fantastic made a day ahead.
