Macaroni Cheese

Macaroni cheese never fails to remind me of my childhood and my kids simply love it. On a cold weekend I often double this recipe and leave it in the fridge for anytime snacks.  Its so simple and just takes 10 minutes.

What you need

250g macaroni or any shell type pasta
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
1 cup grated Cheddar
1 cup grated mature cheddar
1 cup chopped kassler rib meat/vienna sausages
Salt and pepper

The process

Cook you pasta until just al dente, drain and set aside.

Melt the butter in a pot over a medium heat and mix in the flour allowing it to cook for a minute or so stirring continuously. Add the milk and cook, stirring all the time for about 5 minutes. Add the mature cheddar and 1/2 the cheddar and stir until completely melted. Now season with salt and pepper to taste.

I a large oven proof dish mix the pasta, the cheese sauce and the meat and mix together well.

Sprinkle the last of the cheese over the top(if you need more don’t be shy) and bake in a 180 Celsius oven 1/2 an hour.

We use this as a basic macaroni recipe and often add left over chicken with some mustard or whole pork sausages. You can really go to town with this one.

Try this one.. macaroni and cheese with bacon and tomato as a change.
