Cooks in 50 mins


  • 350g Pasta shapes
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1 Garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp Mustard powder
  • 3 tbsp Plain flour
  • 500ml Milk
  • 250g Any cheese you have left, plus a hard cheese for the topping.

How To:

  1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions, drain and set aside
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the garlic and cook for a min until softened, then add the mustard powder and cook for 1 min more. Add the flour and stir to make a paste, cooking for about 1 min, until the mix starts to bubble a little. Take off the heat and gradually pour in the milk, whisking with every addition so the sauce doesn’t go lumpy. Return to the heat and cook for 5 mins until thickened, then add the cheeses, stir until melted, and fold in the pasta.
  3. Heat oven to 160C fan/gas 4.
  4. Tip the pasta into a baking dish, and top with additional cheese, preferably some hard cheese such as cheddar or parmesan, then bake for 25-30 mins, until golden and bubbling. Allow to cool for 10 mins or so then serve.
