Maybe you can try Alton Brown’s receipe for deep fried mac and cheese that he does with the mac and cheese leftovers?

Easy! Make a roux and then add milk seasonings some cheese and then toss with noodles, bake for about 10 minutes more.

oh man…that’s a toughy…it may be possibe to add some more milk and cover the top with aluminum foil so that the steam will be locked in and moisten the noodles. If that doesn’t work, I am not sure of what else you can do to save it =(

I agree with the ladies, you need to add moisture to it! Perhaps put a breadcrumb/cheese topping after to have a crunch effect? When you do this, perhaps put it in a pan that smaller/deeper than the pan you originally used so that more of the noodles are in the milk/roux mixture

make a thin roux.  1tsp of each flour/butter

then milk (to keep it thin, then the cheese. you want it to be able to draw a line thru the back of the spoon and keep it. then mix in the pasta and cover with foil to cook for 10 minutes.  Sounds like you just made too much of the roux.

But then again, I never follow directions πŸ™‚

layla, you should check your oven temp; if it runs high, you can adjust in the future πŸ™‚ or if it’s under warranty get it fixed.

Hope this salvage effort works out πŸ™‚

Wooohoo! I’m thrilled for you πŸ™‚ Being a chef/cook has some advantages (you have no idea how many things I’ve had to salvage in my kitchen career) πŸ™‚

Also a gas range should have a control knob.  Invest in an oven thermometer and put it on one of your racks to keep your oven at a consistent temp.  They are like $10 dollars and can find them at a kitchen store.

The knob for the “flame” should be high to low/off just adjust it and check your oven thermo every time till you get used to the where the knob needs to be for what heat.

Good luck!
