From baked to steamed.

      Eversince my sister and I discovered how baked macaroni taste like, we promised that we will try to make a low budget version of that dish  without the use of an oven. I know that sounds impossible since the name of the dish has "baked" in it but we're really determine to make impossible things possible! Good thing our aunt was kind enough to share us her secret in making this dish by using a steamer. So it's like were substituting oven with a steamer. It was really confusing just thinking about it. The dilemma of making the cheese melt without the use of an oven or even a microwave... That will surely put my cooking skills to the test!

      To cut the long story short, We cooked the sauce first and boiled the elbow macaroni . (The usual stuff that you do in making baked macaroni. I wont go through the ingredients and procedure since this is not a recipe blog that I'm making here :p ) We tried to fill the llaneras with the mixture and my sissie was smart enough to find a roux recipe in youtube. Just like the usual stuff, we pour the mixture, top it with some roux, cover the llaneras with foil and steam the dish for half an hour. We were really surprised with the outcome because it tasted so good! Before you know it, our creation was sold out in just a blink of an eye. Right now, were eyeing to make one for the holidays. It will surely be a hit on our kitchen table!
