When it’s cold and gloomy outside, you might be craving comfort food. I would’ve never thought of having macaroni cheese, but few days of cold weather and early mornings at work and there I was. Comforting myself with children food.
2 -3 cups of pasta (small)
2 knobs of butter
milk (about half a cup)
3-4 spoons of flour
pinch of salt
100 grams of vegetarian cheddar
100 grams of vegetarian parmesan
1. Boil water for pasta.
2. When your pasta is cooking, make your sauce (like bechamel) – melt butter in a pan, add flour and mix carefully on the low heat, then pour milk gradually, whisking. Try not to leave any lumps. Add pinch of salt and as much nutmeg as you like (spoon or two for my liking).
3. Drain pasta and grate parmesan and cheddar. Mix cheese, sauce and pasta (if you feel cordon bleu, add any veg you fancy or fresh herbs or go crazy and add some nuts). Add chunks of mozzarella to it.
4. Butter ovenproof dish, sprinkle some breadcrumbs and transfer your macaroni mixture into it. sprinkle more cheese on top and more breadcrums.
5.Bake in the oven until golden.
