Weeknight mac&cheese

All of the sudden I had an urge for mac & cheese for dinner. Not too keen on the add-only water I decided to make a low fat and fast version. I went to get some Comté, my favourite cheese, milk, ham and some radishes to munch on whilst cooking. The mac & cheese turned out really well, proper comfort food, cooked all in one pot.

Macaroni, milk, 3 slices of smoked ham, a few tablespoons of frozen peas, grated comté cheese, corn starch, salt, pepper

Boil the pasta, drain and set aside, bring the milk to the boil, thicken with the corn starch, add salt and pepper to taste and when good add the cheese, stir until it has melted, add the ham and frozen peas and the macaroni, put the lid on and set aside for 5 minutes and it is ready to eat!

Perfectly light and very comforting on a weeknight even if not quite haut cuisine – it doesn’t always have to be!
