Improved macaroni cheese (serves 2)

4 oz small macaroni
100 g cheese grated
1 leek sliced
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 pinch asafoetida
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1 lvl tbsp plain flour
Milk as required

Boil the macaroni 8 mins and set aside.
Boil the sliced leek in a microwave with 1 tbsp water for 3-4 mins.
Make a white sauce in a deepish and large frying pan with the other ingredients and add also the boiling water from the leeks (vit C). Make the sauce fairly runny as later processes will thicken it. Add shredded cheese at the end and adjust runniness. Stir in the leeks. Add the pasta, stirring as little as possible so the carb doesn't thicken the sauce, turn off heat but let warm through. Serve.

That sounds good Steve. Do you add the asafoetida to promote digestion?

I find the little pinch somehow makes a more rich cheesy flavour - not so much you notice it if you didn’t cook it yourself. Alternatively, leave it out or top with a bit of parmesan. It’ so good my wife requested it for her birthday meal :)

Got something to say?
