50g plain flour
200g macaroni pasta
160g strong cheddar grated
30g mozzarella cheese grated
A little Parmesan for grating
Old style English Mustard
Garlic Powder / Granules
Method: In a large saucepan add salted boiling water, then your macaroni, and cook for around 10 mins until al dente. Meanwhile, mix your butter and flour to make a roux in another saucepan. Take your pan, off the heat, gradually Introduce and mix in the milk to make sure it remains smooth, seasoning with salt & pepper, and adding a few teaspoons of old-style English Mustard and a sprinkle of garlic powder/granules.
Return the sauce to heat and once bubbling, remove from the heat, stir in all the cheese, reserving a little for sprinkling over top. If it's too thick for your liking add a splash more milk, or a little cream if you like.
Drain the Macorini and add it into a large casserole dish, pour over the sauce, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, a little grated parmesan, and a drizzle of garlic oil. Bake in the oven (al forno) at 200 degrees celsius for 10 mins, until bubbling, golden, and delicious. Set aside to cool down for a few mins.
To Assemble / Plate:
Divide into four portions and plate, grating over some parmesan. Serve with fresh rocket and tear up some fresh basil and sprinkle over top.
Make sure you keep some spare to make Jordans Mac & Cheese Balls.
