Macaroni and Cheese with a Master White Sauce Recipe

An all time favourite pasta dish, fantastic as a meal on it’s own Or served as a side dish.

Nothing beats good old comfort food. There are various methods out there to prepare this relatively easy dish, and today I present to you My Way of whipping up this cheesy goodness.

One of the main components of this dish, is the cheese sauce. I whip up a variety of creamy sauces, from one basic recipe. 
So to get to my post on making Mac and Cheese, I share with you my Master White Sauce Recipe, before proceeding on.

Master White Sauce Recipe

3 Cups Milk
3 Tablespoons All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons Butter/Margarine
1/2 teaspoon Salt and White Pepper powder

~Heat the Milk in a saucepan on stove top
~Add the Butter/Margarine, and allow to melt as the milk heats up.

~Add the flour, 1 Tablespoon at a time, whisking well after each addition to prevent lumps from forming.
~bring the now thickening sauce to a gentle boil and remove from the stove top.
~Add your seasoning, Salt and White pepper.
~Whisk well again and check if seasoning is correct.
~Master White Sauce is ready for use.

~1 batch of master white sauce
~when adding seasoning “before” removing from stove top, Add :
~2 teaspoon Mustard Sauce (any variety)
~1/4 teaspoon peri-peri spice (any variety)
~ 1 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese.

~Whisk all these well together, the cheese would melt into the sauce from the heat. Then remove from stove, and adjust seasoning if need be.


All that’s left to do now is:

~ toss together 2 Cups of Prepared Macaroni (according to pack instructions), with the above Cheese Sauce, coat well.
~Place into a greased casserole dish.
(up until this stage, the dish may be prepared and left to rest at room temperature)
~Closer to meal time, bake the Macaroni and Cheese Sauce, at 200 degrees Celsius preheated oven, for 30 minutes.
~ 5 minutes before removing from oven, sprinkle a little more grated cheese on top, sprinkle with dried origanum and peri-peri spice, return to oven until cheese melts.
~Remove from Oven and Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.



Notes by Foodeva Marsay

* Any small type of pasta may be used for this dish, Here I have used Elbow Macaroni, instead of the straight normal Macaroni.
*if you intend to make a smaller batch of sauce, use a 1:1 ratio for the milk to flour and adjust amount of seasonings accordingly.
*♡For Pepper Sauce :- Use ground Black Pepper, instead of white pepper. This may be adjusted to your personal preference.
*♡For a Mushroom Sauce:- stir fry sliced/chopped mushrooms, before adding to hot milk. Ensure you whisk continuously to prevent the flour from clumping up.
