    do you know how to make a basic white cheese sauce?
    med heat - butter in a pan, melt, add flour (1 tbl spoon) stir for 1 minute to cook out flour taste. add hot milk slowly bit by bit, strirring whole time. add cheese. maybe add curry powder (tad)..
    cook macaroni and mix together. dont overcook macaroni esp. if you wanna put it in the oven. mix in some grated vegies(like carrot and zucchinni. maybe corn aswell)
    top with grated cheese and bake in oven til crispy/brown or pop under grill viola!

    This one is delish!

    Macaroni and cheese

    Serves 4

    You need:
    - 150g pasta shapes (penne, tubes, bows)
    - Olive oil spray
    - 2 tbs plain flour
    - 2 tbs butter, melted
    - 2 cups milk, warmed
    - 1 tspn mustard (powder or prepared)
    - Couple drops Tabasco sauce
    - Nutmeg, grated or ground
    - Salt and pepper if desired
    - 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
    - 1/2 cup good cheddar
    - 3 bacon rashers, diced
    - 3 spring onions, sliced finely
    - Breadcrumbs and extra grated parmesan cheese to top

    Method:

    Prepare a large ovenproof dish - give it a little spray with oil to make cleaning up later easier.

    In a saucepan, mix together butter and plain flour, add in Tabasco, mustard, nutmeg and salt and pepper.

    Slowly add the milk, stirring all the time.

    Put on the heat and stir until bubbly and thickened.

    Add in cheeses and remove from heat.

    Put bacon and onion in a pan and cook until softened.

    Cook and drain pasta as per packet directions.

    Place pasta, bacon and onion in your dish, pour over sauce and mix around well, top with the breadcrumbs and extra parmesan. Place in moderate oven (180C) until heated and bubbly.

    Serving Suggestion: Tuck in with a green salad and some lovely crusty bread, yum!
