Step 1

Cook the macaroni pasta in hot water until soft and drain. Leave to the side.

Chop up the bacon into small rectangles and heat in a frying pan until golden brown. Leave to cool.

Step 2

Extra cheesy cheese sauce:
Heat the butter in a pot on the stove and then add a big tablespoon of flour and mix well. Sprinkle over some black pepper (even try a little nutmeg or mustard powder).

Cook on a low heat, constantly stirring for about 1 minute.

Step 3

Pour in about 450ml milk gradually and whisk well.
Bring to the boil, keep stirring as it thickens.

Step 4

Pop in a big hanful of grated cheese (I recommened three types of cheese for extra cheesy goodness).

Step 5

Add in the bacon and stir well. Then add the pasta and stir well again.

Step 6

Serve straight away :D


Can put it in the oven, under the grill to crisp the top.
