Macaroni cheese is such a crowd pleaser, and here’s a nice one to serve alongside some tasty burgers.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g macaroni
1 bunch chives, thinly sliced
200g scamorza, cut into 1 cm cubes
75g pepper jack cheese, grated

Béchamel sauce

Quantity Ingredient
25g butter
25g plain flour
500ml milk
100g cheddar, grated

Method

  1. For the béchamel sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the flour and cook until it just begins to smell nutty, but has no colour.
  2. Add the milk and cook, stirring constantly, until it begins to boil. Now turn the heat down and simmer for 5–10 minutes, or until the flour is cooked out and the liquid has thickened a little. Be careful not to burn the bottom of the pan, so keep stirring. Stir in the cheese and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add the pasta, stir well, and cook according to the packet instructions.
  4. Once the pasta is just al dente, drain well in a colander. Let sit for 10 minutes for all the water to drain off.
  5. To finish, preheat the oven to 175°C. Place the macaroni in a bowl and pour the béchamel sauce over. Toss the chives and mozzarella through, then transfer to an appropriately sized baking dish. Top with the grated pepper jack cheese.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes, until the sides are bubbling and the cheese on top is golden.
