Macaroni Cheese Recipe
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
375g packet dried macaroni or small spirals
50 g butter
1/3 cup (50g) flour
3 ½ cups (875 ml) milk
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 cups (240g) tasty cheese, grated
Salt and pepper
Prepare the pasta using the cooking directions on the packet.
In a large pot, melt butter and add flour over medium heat. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon until it gathers into dough. Continue to stir for another minute or so. This begins to cook the flour.
Add a little milk – about ¼ cup. This will incorporate fairly quickly into the dough and will once again come away from the sides of the pan and look like dough. Once this happens you can add another ¼ cup milk and repeat until all the milk has been added. Stir in mustard, then add cheese and stir until it melts. Taste, and season with salt and pepper if required.
Stir the pasta through the cheese sauce.
If desired, scatter the top with extra cheese and bake until golden and bubbling.
