1 cube of chicken stock 

1/4 kilo of a mix of shredded roumy and cheddar cheese

3 cups of milk

4 Tbsp of flour 

4 Tbsp of butter or oil

Salt & pepper

2 eggs 

Steps: 

1. Start by boiling the pasta, as you usually do, drain the water from it and leave it on the side for now. 

2. In another cooking bowl, melt the butter and add the minced onion. Fry the onion until it turns to a golden brownish color. 

3. Add the colored bell pepper, olives, chicken stock, salt and pepper. Stir together for a few minutes, then add the chicken breasts and the mushrooms. Mix everything together until you feel the chicken cubes are fully cooked.

How to make the bechamel:

1. In another small cooking bowl, melt some butter. Once the butter has melted, add the flour while stirring, until the flour turns yellow.

2. Remove the bowl from the stove, and start to add the milk and stir thoroughly. Once you feel the mixture is creamy and has no clumps, put the bowl back on the stove, and continue to stir until the bechamel begins to boil. Once it begins to boil, turn off the heat. 

3. Leave the bechamel to cool down, then add the eggs, and stir thoroughly once more. 

Making the negresco:

1. Add a quarter of the bechamel you just made, to the pasta you had boiled earlier, and stir well together. 

2. Get a pyrex pan, and butter it up with its sides. Add half of the pasta to the pyrex pan.

3. Once you've created the first pasta layer, start to add the chicken breasts on top of it. Be sure to add the shredded cheese onto the layer of chicken.

4. Add the rest of the pasta on top of the chicken and cheese, creating the final layer of pasta. Pour the rest of the bechamel on it. Be sure to add some cheese on top of the last layer of bechamel 

5. Place the pyrex pan in the oven and leave it for around 20 minutes, once you feel the layer has turned golden brown, it is ready.

3. Pour some corn oil in a frying pan. Once the oil has heated up, take a spoonful of the dough you made in step 2 and place it in the oil. It will start to form a round shape. Repeat, until you finish up the rest of the dough.
