This perfect baked macaroni cheese recipe comes with a creamy cheese sauce and a hint of mustard.


  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 350g spiral or other short pasta

  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped

  • 1 tsp English mustard powder

  • 3 tbsp plain flour

  • 500ml whole milk

  • 250g mature cheddar, grated

  • 50g parmesan grated


Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

Boil the pasta for 2 mins less than stated on the pack, then drain. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the garlic and English mustard powder, cook for 1 min, then stir in the plain flour.

Cook for 1 min more, then gradually whisk in the milk until you have a lump-free sauce. Simmer for 5 mins, whisking all the time until thickened. Take off the heat, then stir in the cheddar and half the parmesan.

Stir the pasta and some seasoning into the cheesy sauce. Tip into a large ovenproof dish, or four individual dishes.

Scatter over the remaining parmesan, then bake for 20 mins until crisp and golden. Can be frozen before baking – defrost thoroughly before cooking.
