Macaroni Cheese

Macaroni Cheese

IHCCAs we will be outward-bound and heading into summer for pretty much the rest of our journey with Jamies' recipes, it seemed like a good idea to bring this version of mac'n'cheese to the potluck before the weather gets to hot to use the oven.

Macaroni Cheese

Adapted from Cook with Jamie by Jamie Oliver


500 g macaroni
salt and black pepper
1 Tbsp butter
1 tsp dried marjoram
100 g parmesan,grated
100 g talegio
100 g sour cream (1 tub)
50 g parmesan, grated


Preheat the oven to 200°C. Boil the pasta in salted water until they are about 2 minutes underdone and drain, reserving some of the cooking water. Melt the butter in a pan and fry the marjoram until fragrant. Add the cheeses and the sour cream and stir on medium heat until the cheese has melted. Add some of the cooking water to adjust the consistency of the sauce, if necessary. Add the drained pasta and toss well. Add a generous amount of grated nutmeg and transfer the pasta to an oven-proof dish. Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan and bake for about 10 minutes until the cheese is nicely browned.
