Like most little ones (and this big one) The Monster loves cheese. One of the quickest and easiest meals I make for him is this super simple Mac n Cheese. I pretty much always have the ingredients for this available in the house, so it is a great go to dish.

This re-heats well but doesn’t freeze very well, however leftovers will  be fine in the fridge for 3 days, not that they ever last that long in our house!


  • 1 cup dried macaroni
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of plain flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup grated mature cheddar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard


Boil the pasta until just cooked, pasta is best when it still has some firmness to it. in a small pan over a medium heat melt the butter and add the flour to create a paste. Pour in the milk and whisk on the heat, as the lumps dissolve the milk will thicken. Add the mustard and the cheese and stir until completely melted. Tip the pasta into the sauce and stir until completely coated.
