Macaroni and cheese is such a simple, quick and tasty dish perfect for kids and the whole family. I add a kick of spice to mine 🙂

Serves 4-6 | Cooking Time: ~25 minutes


  • 500g Macaroni Pasta

  • Add the butter to a medium pan on a low heat.
  • Once melted, stir in the plain flour until it is a smooth paste.
