This is my own version of Macroni Cheese. It’s a good one for midweek as it doesn’t really take that long to cook. It’s a good family favourite.

Ingredients

Serves 4 (or 3 hungry people)

300g of macaroni pasta

1 onion, finely chopped

40g of butter

2 tablespoons of olive oil

3 heaped dessertspoons

100ml of milk

25g parmesan cheese, grated

½ ball of mozzarella, roughly chopped

5 medallions of bacon, chopped roughly

½ teaspoon of mixed spice or nutmeg

Salt and pepper

 

Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions. I find that macaroni pasta takes longer to cook, so it may take longer than on the packet. Add salt and a splash of oil and stir to avoid the pasta sticking.
  2. Meanwhile, fry off the onions and bacon in a frying pan until golden brown. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan melt the butter and oil, add in the flour, little by little creating a buttery consistency. It is best to use a whisk and stir vigorously lifting off the heat regular to avoid burning. Add in the milk, little by little until it is a nice creamy consistency. This is known as a roux. Add in the spice, grated parmesan, salt and pepper to the sauce and stir. Take off heat.
  4. Add the cooked pasta to the onions and bacon and pour in the sauce. Stir ingredients together and 
  5. Pour all the ingredients into an ovenproof dish and sprinkle the mozzarella over the mixture.
  6. Place until a grill until the cheese has melted and golden. Serve immediately.
