Upside Down Mac & Cheese w/Smoked Kielbasa
By Kim Biegacki pistachyoo
My 4th recipe cooking in the Ninja & is one amazing cheezy, crusty and delicious mac & cheese. This is one of those comfort food dishes that is necessary when you are wanting to indulge a little. I did make some additions & combine my favorite cheeses because there are times when mac & cheese just soothes the soul and is so satisfying for a meal. I made this up for my nephews who spent the weekend and still there was plenty left over I sent a container home with them for the next day.
A crunchy green salad w/Italian dressing would pair well.
Recipe from Ninja Cooking System Cookbook.
Janet got "Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice"

tried this recipe and it came out terrible. The cheese was 'lumpy' and it just didn't taste good. So far, I am not liking the Ninja at all. I tried the one for scalloped potatoes and it was not even edible. I cooked it for the amount of time the recipe indicated and the potatoes were still raw. I had to cook it for an additional 1 1/2 hours for it to be done.

Patricia sorry to hear it didn't turn out for you. It sounds like maybe your Ninja might not be coming up to the right temperature. I've made the scalloped potatoes and they came out delish. My husband who doesn't like scalloped potatoes loved them too. ---- I have more of the problem of the Ninja cooking to much...seems to get hot so fast. I used it today to heat my sliced roast beef with a thick au jus and it cooked the beef so fast that it ended up shredding it (not what I wanted at all). However, it worked out because they were putting it on sandwiches w/a slice of mozzarella cheese. But I wouldn't use it like a crock pot again cause of the heat. ---- I wonder if there is a way to check the temperature of the inside of your Ninja?

I got disgusted with it and called them. They said it was a heating issue, too. They are sending me a new one. I thought maybe the recipe was written wrong. Should it have been made in the multi purpose pan or the big cooking pot? The recipe didn't seem clear to me.
