Egyptian Pasta with Bechamel & Cannabutter


Egyptian Pasta with Bechamel & Cannabutter

Attention pasta lovers! Today we’re making the beautifully baked Egyptian Pasta with Bechamel & Cannabutter.

Pasta truly is one of life’s pleasures. Comforting, warm, decadent, flavourful and perfect for any night of the week.

What makes this dish so special besides the cannabutter? Layers of pasta combined with velvety smooth bechamel and a ground beef mixture that makes this both filling and totally satisfying.

What Is Bechamel?

Bechamel is a careful combination of flour, butter and milk to make what the French call a Roux.

Once you’ve got a roux, you can add in spices and herbs to flavour it – and it’s a nice little creamy sauce that can go on pasta, meat, even steamed veggies.

How Do I Make Cannabutter?

Bud butter is what makes this dish a weed edible! If you haven’t made it before, the recipe is below, and you won’t be disappointed!

A recipe on how to make cannabis butter at home. After many cannabutter recipes, we find that this is by far the best way to infuse weed with butter.
