Cooking Tips

Identify the slippery ingredients like cucumber or tomatoes and keep them aside. Take the spread that you are using, the next layer to come should be the rough leafy greens like Lettuce etc..

Cooking Tips
  • The first step to perfect mac and cheese is to get your pasta just right. The easiest way to do this is by adding plenty of salt to your water, which will ensure your pasta is well seasoned once cooked, and never ends up bland.
  • When choosing which pasta shape to cook, opt for a small variety with plenty of crevices to hold the sauce. The obvious choice is classic elbow pasta, but you can also choose another variety such as fusilli or farfalle.
  • No matter what cheese you choose, make sure you are generous with the quantities. There is a reason cheese is in the title of this recipe, so don’t hold back. You want the final dish to be creamy, decadent and rich, and extra cheese is the way to do it.
  • Make that simple mac and cheese your own by throwing in everything from sautéed mushrooms to fried bacon, or your favourite herbs. Other inclusions range from caramelised onions to diced sundried tomatoes. Here are a few recipes with even more added extras to get you started:
