Ingredients

  • 250g/9oz macaroni
  • 40g/1½oz butter
  • 40g/1½ plain flour
  • 600ml/1pint 1½fl oz milk
  • 250g/9oz grated cheddar
  • 50g/2oz grated parmesan

Preparation method

  1. Cook the macaroni in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 8-10 minutes; drain well and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter over a medium heat in a saucepan slightly larger than that used for the macaroni. Add the flour and stir to form a roux, cooking for a few minutes.
  3. Gradually whisk in the milk, a little at a time. Cook for 10-15 minutes to a thickened and smooth sauce.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to hot.
  5. Remove the sauce from the hob, add 175g/6oz of the cheese and stir until the cheese is well combined and melted.
  6. Add the macaroni to the sauce and mix well. Transfer to a deep suitably-sized ovenproof dish.
  7. Sprinkle over the remaining cheddar and the Parmesan and place the dish under the hot grill. Cook until the cheese is browned and bubbling. Serve straightaway.
