Mac n’ cheese is a classic. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 jar of white sauce
  • 500g macaroni pasta
  • 270ml double cream
  • 50g mature cheese

Seasoning: salt, pepper, mustard, and herbs (tarragon is yummy)

Method:

  1. Cook the macaroni pasta as per the instructions on the packet in boiling salted water
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  3. Once ready, rinse the pasta in cold water to “refresh”
  4. Add the white sauce and cream to the pasta in a pan
  5. Mix all the ingredients together including half of the cheese
  6. Taste and add herbs of your choice to season
  7. Add a teaspoon of mustard if you have it
  8. Place in an oven-proof dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheese
  9. Oven bake in a preheated oven until golden and bubbling hot (around 15-20 mins)

Serving suggestion:

  • The difference in mustards: English (hot), French (milder), or whole grain (bursts of mustard).
  • Mac n' cheese can be eaten as a main dish or a side to other meals. Feel free to adjust to your taste with added onions and garlic.
  • Sprinkle with breadcrumbs when you add the cheese for an added crunch!
