Easy Peasy Cheesy Pasta

  • 400g pasta spirals, shells or macaroni
  • 50g butter
  • 2 tbs plain flour
  • 2 cups (500ml) milk
  • 2 cups (250g) grated tasty cheese
  • Chopped parsley (optional)
  • Pinch of Nutmeg
  • Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling water according to packet instructions (different brands may vary in size & cooking times) until al dente.
  • Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and add the flour. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute over medium-low heat. I prefer to use a whisk to get the lumps out.
  • Gradually add the milk, using a whisk to stir until smooth and get out the lumps. Stir gently until the mixture comes just to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, ad a pinch of nutmeg and the grated cheese and stir until melted and smooth.
  • Drain pasta and return to the pan. Pour cheese sauce over the pasta and stir until well coated. Season with salt and white pepper to taste. 
  • Serve immediately sprinkled with chopped parsley.
