Ingredients

  • 250g macaroni
  • 1 head cauliflower , broken into pieces
  • 25g butter
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tsp English mustard powder
  • 450ml milk
  • 100g cheddar , grated

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the macaroni following pack instructions, adding the cauliflower for the final 4 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Melt the butter in a pan, then stir in the flour and mustard powder and cook for 2 mins. Gradually add the milk, stirring all the time to get a smooth sauce. Add three-quarters of the cheese and some seasoning to the sauce.

  • STEP 3

    Drain the macaroni and cauliflower and stir into the cheese sauce. Transfer to an ovenproof dish, then sprinkle over the remaining cheese and flash under a hot grill until golden and bubbling. Serve with a green salad, if you like.
