Cook the Macaroni
Bring a pot of water to boil and then add the macaroni noodles. Cook until just before al dente, about 8 minutes. Taste it. They should be cooked but still have a bite or a spring texture to it because it will continue cooking while grilled.
At the same time, steam the mushrooms until soft. Then drain them and cook in a bit of olive oil with a teaspoon of salt.
Prepare the Oyster Mushroom Mac and Cheese
Drain the macaroni and add to a buttered loaf or casserole dish. Mix in the cheese and the mushrooms. Top it off with the parmesan cheese, shredded really finely with a microplane.
Heat up the Otto Grill
Take out the grill grate and drip tray and preheat the Otto Grill to the highest heat for 3 minutes.
