Parsley as garnish (optional, can finely chop and mix through)


1. Cook macaroni in a boiling water (as per packet instructions), ensure to add a tbs or two of salt to the water prior to putting the macaroni in
2. At the same time, melt butter in a saucepan and add the flour
3. Cook over low heat, stirring for 1 - 1 1/2 minutes
4. Add milk gradually while stirring
5. Stir until the mixture just starts boiling, then reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes.
6. Remove the saucepan from the heat, add the grated cheese and stir until melted and smooth.
7. Once the pasta is al dente, drain and return to the pan.

    Sounds lovely, to turn it into Gluten Free you can use 35% heavy cream or evaporated milk ( instead of the milk and flour) and use GF pasta...
