Macaroni and cheese

Preparation time: less than 30 minutes
Cooking time: 10 to 30 minutes
Serves 4


☛250 gm macaroni
☛40 gm butter
☛40 gm plain flour
☛600 ml milk
☛250 gm grated cheddar
☛50 gm grated parmesan (or a similar vegetarian alternative)

  1. Cook the macaroni in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 8-10 minutes; drain well and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter over a medium heat in a saucepan slightly larger than that used for the macaroni. Add the flour and stir to form a roux, cooking for a few minutes.
  3. Gradually whisk in the milk, a little at a time. Cook for 10-15 minutes to a thickened and smooth sauce.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to hot.
  5. Remove the sauce from the hob, add 175g/6oz of the cheese and stir until the cheese is well combined and melted.
  6. Add the macaroni to the sauce and mix well. Transfer to a deep suitably-sized oven-proof dish.
  7. Sprinkle over the remaining cheddar and the parmesan and place the dish under the hot grill. Cook until the cheese is browned and bubbling. Serve straightaway.
