This is a quick and easy dish when you are only cooking for one. It can be either a very satisfying snack or serve with some steamed greens for a quick after-work dinner.


Serves: 1 

  • 20g uncooked macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk
  • 1/3 cup (40g) grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 dash Tabasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated cheddar cheese

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat an oven to 200 degrees C. Grease an oven-proof soup crock or 1 cup baking dish.
  2. Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Stir in the macaroni; boil until cooked but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well and reserve.
  3. In the same saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper, onion powder and milk; whisk until smooth. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and whisk in 1/3 cup cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce. Stir in the cooked macaroni. Spoon the macaroni and cheese into the prepared dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake, uncovered, until the cheese is melted and the macaroni is heated through, about 10 minutes.
