Radiatore Green Chile Mac and Cheese is a perfect Southwestern variation of a classic favorite with Hatch Green Chile. Great by itself but a sure complement to any meal.
Directions: Add 2 quarts of water and a pinch of salt to a 4-quart sauce pan and bring to a boil. Add pasta and boil for 12 to 15 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached. Drain.
While pasta is cooking, add 1-2/3 cups of 2% milk and 3 Tablespoons of salted butter to a microwave safe bowl. Heat milk until butter melts and milk is very warm. Do not boil. Add contents of sauce package and whisk until smooth. Set aside while pasta cooks. The extra time is necessary so that the dried chile can absorb water.
Mix sauce and pasta together in the still warm sauce pan and stir until smooth. There will be excess sauce that will be absorbed by the pasta.
