Feed 4 for £5 - how to cook mac 'n' cheese

Posted in: Food and drink


  • Jar of white sauce
  • Dried macaroni pasta
  • Pot of fresh cream
  • 50g mature cheddar cheese
  • Store cupboard seasoning, mustard, and herbs (tarragon works well)


  • Cook the macaroni pasta as per the manufacturer’s instructions in boiling salted water
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 celcius
  • Rinse in cold water to 'refresh' (rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process)
  • Add the content of the white sauce jar and add the pot of cream to the pasta
  • Mix all the ingredients together including half of the cheese
  • Taste and adjust seasoning and add black pepper - adding now mean you will have more taste and use less salt
  • Add herbs of your choice
  • Add a teaspoon of mustard
  • Place in an oven proof dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheese
  • Oven bake in a preheated oven until golden and bubbling hot.
  • This dish can be eaten as a main dish or a side to other meals. Feel free to adjust to your taste with added onions and garlic. Sprinkle with stuffing mix when you add the cheese for added crunch!
