CHEFS SUGGESTIONS

  • Macaroni and Cheese will keep, if covered well, for a few days. Simply place into the cooking bowl with a little milk and reheat using STEW P1
  • You can add almost any cheese to this dish simply kept total amount as in the recipe and play around with different types.
  • If you want to add some crunch to the dish you can bake the finished macaroni and cheese in an oven proof dish at 200C for about 10 minutes or until golden and crispy on top.
