Mac and cheese


Serves: 4 Time: 20 minutes

  • 275g macaroni
  • 2 tbsp butter (or vegan alternative)
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 500ml milk
  • 300g cheddar, grated (or vegan alternative)
  • Salt and pepper to taste



Add the pasta to a pan of boiling water and cook for 2 minutes less than suggested then drain.


Meanwhile, in a large saucepan on a medium heat, melt the butter.

Stir the flour into the butter and cook for 2 minutes then slowly whisk in the milk until you have a lump free sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes, continuing to whisk, until the sauce has thickened.

Remove from the heat and stir in the grated cheese before adding the pasta and season with salt and pepper to taste.


Serve with some sliced spring onions and crispy onions to garnish or scatter breadcrumbs over the top and grill on the highest temperature for 5 minutes.
