Mac N Cheese

Mac N Cheese is the ultimate comfort food for me :) I just love it so much. There are endless versions of this dish and this is one of mine :)


Dried Macaroni (as needed)
Water for boiling
Pinch of salt
4 slices of Jalapenos ( I used the ones in a jar) chopped.
Small tin of sweetcorn
1 green bell pepper diced
pinch of Black pepper
1/2 tsp English mustard
3 tsp cornflour 
Grated cheese as needed for sauce and topping
2 and 1/2 cups of milk.
Powdered tomato ketchup flavoured Cheetos for bread crumbs.
Preparation Method :
Pre heat the oven to 180

Chop up the veg and take out the amount of sweetcorn needed.

Grate the amount of cheese needed.

In a medium sized pan add the milk, cornflour,cheese, mustard and salt and pepper and heat on a medium heat.
Stir continuously until the cheese has melted and the sauce is thickened nicely.

Now add the veg to the sauce and mix through. If at this stage the sauce is still runny, you can add more cornflour by mixing a little more in some milk and pouring it in the pan.

Then set aside.

Now prepare the Macaroni.

Add the Macaroni to a pan and add salt and boiling water.
Boil the macaroni for 8 minutes ( it cooks quickly as it's tiny)

Drain and put it in an oven proof dish.

Add the sauce to the macaroni and stir through.

Now sprinkle the desired amount of cheese on top followed by the crushed cheetos for a crunchy topping :)

Pop it in the oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is bubbling  
and the topping is crunchy and to your liking :)

Gorgeous eh :)

Time to eat.

Enjoy :)
