Macaroni Cheese Recipe

Macaroni Cheese


Macaroni cheese-Honest Mum

I’ve given this a healthier twist as I use wholemeal pasta but there’s still a fair bit of cheese here. Is there anything more comforting than macaroni cheese? Use gluten-free pasta if you prefer.

You can always rustle it up gluten-free too with rice pasta.

Macaroni cheese-honest mum


250g/9oz macaroni (we used wholewheat twirls/ use gluten-free too)
1 organic vegetable stock cube
40g/1½oz butter
40g/1½ plain flour
600ml/1pint 1½fl oz milk
250g/9oz feta cheese
50g/2oz grated parmesan (or vegetarian option)


Cook the pasta in large pan of boiling water (with stock cube) for 10-12 minutes.
When al dente, drain and set to one side.
Place the butter in a large saucepan and melt on a medium heat.
Add the flour and stir gently to form a roux, cooking for a few minutes.
Gradually whisk in the milk, pouring in a little at a time.
Cook for 12-15 minutes until the mixture becomes a thick, smooth sauce.
Preheat the grill to hot.
Remove the sauce from the hob, add 175g/6oz of the feta cheese and stir well.
Pour the macaroni in to the sauce and mix well.
Transfer to a deep suitably-sized oven proof dish and sprinkle the remaining feta and the parmesan over it before placing under the grill.
Cook until the cheese is browned.
Serve immediately.
