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 RR1985 on 27. July 2018 - 11:58.

    Added a grated zucchini and carrot and cooked for 10 mins. Used a tbsp of veg stock paste and Dijon mustard as recommended. Added a tin of tuna in my serve which was nice. Next time would also add a bit of chicken stock paste, a cup of frozen veg and some ham or bacon instead of tuna. Would also use a stronger cheese because I found it a bit bland. Toddler loved it. Made heaps so I froze some.

  • Really simple & tasty....

    Submitted by Megsy13 on 25. July 2018 - 10:23.

    Really simple & tasty.

    I made this using parmesan, and a combo of colby and elbo cheese. Also added a tblsp of dijon and a tblsp of veggie stock paste (and omitted the salt) as suggested in the comments. Initially the dijon seemed a little overpowering, but this subsided.

    I only had cheap plain flour, but I cooked it for an extra minute as suggested, and there was no floury taste whatsoever.

    To ramp it up a little (after the kids grabbed theirs), I strirred through some chopped jalapenos and sprinkled with breadcrumbs, then baked it for about 20-30 minutes. OMG! Super-powered mac & cheese!!! My husband went back for thirds & still wanted more!

    This is a great recipe and this sauce will be my go-to in the future. So simple and so versatile. Thanks for sharing!

    Also did you boil the sauce? Should only go to 90degrees

    This was so quick to make, and really yummy. I used maasdam cheese, a TB vegie stock and TB dijon mayo as per some other suggestions and mixed through some cooked bacon at the end! Delicious - better than any packet macncheese! And while ita not the healthiest of meals, its nice to know its not loaded with other nasties. 5 stars from the toddler too!

    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.
