Ingredients

Pasta

  • 300g pasta (75g per person)
  • Enough boiled water to cover the pasta

Cheese Sauce

  • 300g pasta (75g per person)
  • Enough boiled water to cover the pasta
  • 150g grated cheddar cheese
  • 30g plain flour
  • 50g butter or margarine
  • 50ml milk
  • 7g mustard powder
  • Salt and pepper

Method

  • STEP 1
    Put a saucepan with the water onto boil, and then add all the macaroni.
  • STEP 2
    Leave the macaroni to simmer for as long as the pasta bag says to (Usually around 12 minutes) but do not cook thoroughly as this will happen when baked.
  • STEP 3
    Get a smaller saucepan and mix the butter and flour until combined and dough like (do this on a low heat) and then slowly add the milk, a little at a time.
  • STEP 4
    When all the milk is mixed in, add the mustard powder and slowly add the cheese, a handful at a time. You will know when the sauce is done because it will have thickened. Add as much seasoning as you want.
  • STEP 5
    Drain the pasta and put the sauce on top. Add a little grated cheese and bake for around 7 minutes on high heat (around 180 degrees or gas mark 6/7) until the cheese on top has melted and gone golden.
