Macaroni and cheese with prosciutto and mushrooms

By March 24, 2014

Well in the pantry i found a nice bag of macaroni, flour, a red onion (use any kind you have), some bread crumbs and a few mushrooms from when i bough to many to make stuffed mushrooms. In the fridge i found, by miracle, a few slices of prosciutto (it was a miracle that nobody ate them), a tiny piece of Emmentaler, cream and some Parmesan.

Well i mixed and tossed them and so came to be this recipe.
