I'm menu planning for the weekend. I've got a major hankering for macaroni cheese. (Probably because I'm having a serious diet for 3 days to get rid of holiday weight and all I can think about is food!)

Please share with me your favourite macaroni cheese recipe

I did one recently with leeks, spring onions, pancetta and excess parmesan

Jamie Oliver has one that doesn't use the flour/butter thing it's just like 4 different types of cheese melted into pasta and it is UNREAL.

Hawksmoor. 4 kinds of cheese.

Make a cheese sauce with just cheese and cream!

1 cup of double cream
1 cup of cream cheese
2 cups of grated cheddar
Melt together over a gentle heat, stirring occasionally.
Season to taste.

This makes the most amazing cheese sauce, add to pasta, add extra grated cheese and bake in the oven until golden and crispy.

Also makes great cauliflower cheese.

Fry streaky bacon snipped into bits until crispy while you make the pasta- when cooked stir in loads of pesto. Then add peas and the crispy bacon. Add cheese sauce and stir gently so not completely mixed. Top with more cheese and bake.

YY to using cream or butter and several different cheeses instead of cheese sauce.

Ooh, I love all of these ideas for no traditional cheese (flour/butter/milk) sauce!

I think four cheeses plus cream would probably undo all your dieting. Dont do it OP!!

I base mine off a Delia recipe. Fry some leeks, bacon and chorizo and chuck that in. Make a white sauce and melt a load of cheddar. Top with cheddar, pecorino and breadcrumbs or crushed up ready salted crisps. It's heaven! grin
