Ingredients

6 portion(s)

Cheese Sauce

  • 120 grams Tasty cheese
  • 60 grams pamersan cheese
  • 45 grams plain flour
  • 50 grams Butter
  • .1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 500 grams Milk

Pasta

  • 400 grams Dried Elbow Pasta, Add or Subtract to your own judgement

Recipe's preparation

  1. Start by boilng saucepan of water for pasta, season water. Add dried pasta when boiling. 

    Add both tasty and pamersan cheese to Thermomix Bowl and grate 5 Secs/Speed 8.  Add all ingredients and cook 7 - 8 Mins/Speed 3/90 Degrees.  

     

    Once completed and pasta is cooked, drain pasta and drop back into saucepan.  Add Cheese sauce to pasta and carefully combine.  Serve.....I take no responsibility if you eat this whole thing on your own.  I know I have in the past (oops).  Enjoy.....there is nothing better on a cold winters day/night then the smell, taste and texture of Mac & Cheese tmrc_emoticons.) 

     

    I have cooked double the mixture a couple of times now.  It just fits in the Bowl and is great for a big feed if having heaps of kids/big kids around.  When chopping the cheese....leave it go for about 15 seconds and make sure to cook the sauce for at least 16 mins.  The sauce covers 800gs of elbow pasta perfectly anymore and I find it doesnt cover enough and becomes kind of cluggy.  But make sure you dont use anything but good plain flour and most definitely don't use pre grated cheese as the anticaking agent in grated cheese clogs up the sauce and trust me....its tastes so much better when made from the block for both type of cheeses tmrc_emoticons.)

     

    I cant stress enough how much the best quality cheese you can get makes such a difference with this dish.  Mix it up also....try some different types of cheese to create different flavours!!

     

    Im chuffed everyone loves this Mac & Cheese....thankyou to everyone who is leaving comments and raiting it. tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by moomin on 9. November 2017 - 16:07.

    The consistency was perfect. The flavour almost non-existent, but perhaps that's how mac cheese is supposed to be. My five year old loved it. My husband, son and I weren't as fussed. I'm sure the mac cheese lover would be happy with such an easy resipe but perhaps a bit of salt or some extra bitey cheese would be best.

    cheriebah:Im no sure why its turned out this way guys...I know I once had the same-ish result when I used cheap flour and just a cheap homebrand block of cheese, maybe that was why it was bland?
    Everytime I cook this now I use really good plain flour (I pay around $5 for a kg of it) and really good cheese. I hope it turns out better next time tmrc_emoticons.)

    This is a favourite in our house and is regularly featured on our weekly meal plan. I do substitute out the tasty cheese and use the Kraft cheddar to give it more of a flavour like the packet Mac cheese as this is the one my kids used to have.

    Kate13: I was the same. I was excited & even psyched the kids up but disappointed it was terrible even the kids wouldn't eat it. Is it possible the plain flour was poor quality as it left a flour after taste....I feel bad being the minority but its left me puzzled now

    Great recipe. I've tried numerous mac and cheese recipes both stove top and thermie based recipe and this is by far the best to date. I've even had no success with the skinny mixer mac and cheese. This is delish.

    i cooked my pastA in the thermie bowl prior to making the cheese sauce and once finished put it in the oven with more cheese on top.

    Submitted by CookingIzSoFun_LoveCooking on 12. June 2017 - 16:24.

    This is my go to recipe for mac-and-cheese! It's just so good! I like to add a few spring onions.

    The recipe for a single portion is as follows:
    Boil 75g of pasta in the stove until cooked through.
    In the Thermomix, grate 20g of cheddar cheese and 10g of parmesan cheese 4 secs/speed 8.
    Add 10g butter, 10g flour, 85g milk, and a pinch of salt and pepper, and cook 4.5mins/speed 3/ 90 degrees.

    This is literally the best Macaroni Cheese I've ever eaten so thanks so much for the brilliant recipe!

    I even added hidden cauliflower and she gobbled it all down despite her initial questioning of the colour not being the same as what she normally has (the instant stuff full of preservatives etc) .... I definitely won't be buying that again after the success of this. Thank you.

    This was super simple but I just found it didn't have much flavour. Not sure if it was the cheese I used or not as it has so many great reviews. The kids loved it so maybe I'm just not a mac and cheese fan!

    Absolutely DELICIOUS!! My husband loves the Kraft Mac n Cheese packets and it's often a quick weekend lunch but we didn't have any yesterday so I found this recipe and decided to have a go - we'll never by the packet mix again!! So easy and so yummy. We added some bacon and chorizo for some extra flavour and I will probably only make a half batch next time as there are a LOT of leftovers but my husband is pretty happy about that Wink Thank you for an amazing recipe!
