For Mac & Cheese

  • 250grams of dried pasta
  • 2 teaspoons of marmite
  • 75grams of grated cheddar
  • 75grams of grated parmesan
  • 30grams of butter
  • 30grams of flour
  • 250ml(ish) of milk
  • For the crumb

  • Panko breadcrumbs
  • Rosemary
  • Olive Oil
  • Torres Jamón Crisps
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 📖Method

  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
  • Start with making your crumb, add a little olive oil and a crushed clove of garlic to a frying pan on a medium heat. Once the garlic begins to colour remove it from the oil and add your breadcrumbs and toss through.
  • Once the breadcrumbs start to colour, add your rosemary and toss through, once your breadcrumbs are almost toasted, add in the crisps (crushed), mix and then set aside.
  • Get your pasta on, in a large pot of boiling water.
  • On medium heat begin to melt your butter, once melted add the marmite and combine, follow with the flour and stir or whisk well to avoid lumps.
  • Once combined, begin to slowly add your milk, making sure it stays a nice smooth consistency.
  • When you've got a nice smooth sauce and all your milk is added, add your grated cheese and melt into the sauce. No need to stir at this point just add it on top and let the heat melt it.
  • After a few minutes stir the cheese in and add a splash of pasta water
  • When your pasta is just slightly undercooked, add it to the sauce and remove it from the heat. Stir through for a couple of minutes.
  • Transfer the pasta & sauce to an ovenproof dish and top generously with the crumb. Pop in the oven for about 15 minutes or until your crumb gets a little more colour, looking for a nice golden brown.
  • Remove, eat and enjoy!
