Cooking: Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and Cheese

If you're looking for some comfort food for these miserable winter days you can't go wrong with a bit of macaroni and cheese. Let's make some then!


8oz macaroni
8oz cheddar cheese (EDIT: On second thought, this is an illegal amount of cheese to be adding to this. :D You can totally cut this by half or maybe even three quarters without drastically impacting the flavour)
16 fl oz milk
2 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons butter

  1. Cook the macaroni and drain it with a strainer. Press down on the pasta a little with a fork to get out more water if necessary.
  2. Grate the cheese and set it aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to about 180ºC/350ºF
  4. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the flour, mixing it into a smooth paste.
  5. Cook the mix for a few minutes, stirring to keep it from burning.
  6. Add in the milk and stir until the flour and butter paste is dissolved.
  7. Cook the mixture until it thickens. keep stirring it in case it starts to burn.
  8. Now, add in the cheese and stir the mixture until it's melted.
  9. Mix the cheese mixture and macaroni together in a suitably big casserole dish.
  10. Put the cover on the casserole dish and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes.
  11. Eat it, dammit! (EDIT: Ugh.)
