- Pretty low
- Washing up
To serve 2 hungry people:
- 150g macaroni
- 1 packet of cheese sauce mix (I use Colman's Four Cheese Sauce)
- 300ml milk (for Colman's Four Cheese Sauce - your sauce mix may differ)
- 125g cheddar cheese
- 2 normal bags (or 1 large bag) of salted crisps (I use Walkers Ready Salted)
- Sprinkling of salt
- Also recommended:
- Measuring jug
- Collander for draining pasta
- Baking dish
- Cheese grater
- Put water in the saucepan, sprinkle a little bit of salt in. Boil the water.
- Put the macaroni into the saucepan. Cook for as long as directed.
- Meanwhile, grate the cheese, and crush the crisps (squish them while they're in their bag).
- When the macaroni is done, drain the water off, and put the macaroni into the baking disk.
- Prepare the cheese sauce mix according to the packet. It'll probably involve putting the mix into the (cleaned) saucepan, heating it up and stirring the milk into it.
- Pour the cheese sauce over the pasta. Stir in the sauce into the pasta, along with a tiny bit of the grated cheese.
- Some people like to stir in things like peas or bacon at this bit. Weird.
- Flatten the macaroni out, and sprinkle half of the remaining cheese over the top.
- Sprinkle the flattened crisps over the top of the cheese.
- Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the crisps, making a crisps-in-cheese sandwich. Mmm.
- Put in the oven for 20 minutes.
- If you have fresh garlic bread, it'll probably want 5-10 minutes, but frozen may want longer. Check the time it says, and add it at the appropriate time.
Best served with ketchup and no salad. That would just be wrong.
