Macaroni & Cheese

Serves: 2

Melted margarine, to grease
145g (1 cup) dried macaroni pasta
40g (1/2 cup) grated cheddar

White sauce
375ml (1 1/2 cups) milk
20g (1 tbs) margarine
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
1 tbs cornflour
125ml (1/2 cup) water

Preheat oven to 250°C. Brush a 1-litre (4-cup) ovenproof dish with the melted margarine to lightly grease.

Cook the macaroni in a medium saucepan of salted boiling water following packet directions or until al dente.

Meanwhile, to make sauce, heat milk and margarine in a saucepan over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper. Combine cornflour and water and stir in gradually. Bring to the boil, stirring. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring, for 5-7 minutes or until thick.
Drain the macaroni. Add to the white sauce and stir to combine. Transfer to greased dish and sprinkle with cheddar. Cook in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately.
