Ingredients

  • Milk
    3 cups (700 ml)
  • Butter
    3 tablespoon
  • Flour
    3 tablespoon
  • Pre-grated cheese
    2 cups (120 g)
  • Dijon mustard
    1 tsp

Method

  1. Melt the butter in quite a large pan as you will be adding the pasta later.

  2. Add the flour stir and cook for 1-2 mins on a slow heat.

  3. Take the pan off the heat and add half the milk, replace the pan whisk so no lumps appear then when thickening add the rest of the milk.

  4. Take off the heat add the cheese stir until it all has melted.

  5. You may have to place it back on heat to insure it’s all melted but keep stirring it if you do.

  6. If adding the optional mustard do so now.

    The mustard really brings out the cheese and lifts the whole dish, however not so good when serving children.

  7. Ready for the freezer

    Do not freeze until completely cold
    Freeze flat in a labeled freezer bag.

  8. Ready to Eat

    Thaw in a fridge overnight. Great to use for pouring over chicken, for making macaroni cheese, cauliflower cheese, mossaka etc.
