One Pot Macaroni Cheese With Bacon & Rosemary

by Tefal Team on 06 September 2018
  • We can’t think who wouldn’t enjoy this perfect one Ingenio pot comfort food. We think it’s served best with a crispy green salad (so you don’t feel like you’re being completely naughty)!

    Thanks to the removable handle, you can use the same pot on the hob, in the oven, then serve at the table and store leftovers (if any!) in the fridge. Complete convenience and less washing up! Ingenious!

  • You will need:

    • Ingenio 20cm Saucepan
    • Ingenio Removable Handle
    • Ingenio Straining Lid
    • Serving plate
  • Ingredients:

    • 250g macaroni pasta
    • ½ tbsp vegetable oil
    • 200g smoked bacon lardons (or use smoked bacon, diced)
    • ½ clove garlic, finely chopped
    • ½ tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
    • 40g butter
    • 40g plain flour
    • 600ml milk
    • 150g grated cheddar
    • 50g grated parmesan
  • Method

    Step 1. Using a 20cm Ingenio saucepan cook the macaroni in boiling salted water for 8-10 minutes; drain well and set the macaroni aside.

  • Step 2. Put the saucepan back on the heat and add the oil and bacon and saute for 2 to 3 minutes until bacon starts to brown, add the garlic and chopped rosemary and fry for another minute.

  • Step 3. Add the butter and when melted add the flour and stir to thicken, cooking for a few minutes.

    Step 4. Gradually stir in the milk, a little at a time. Cook for approx 10 minutes to a thickened and smooth sauce, stirring regularly. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to hot.

  • Step 5. Add 150g of the cheese and stir until the cheese is well combined and melted. Add the macaroni to the sauce and mix well.

  • Step 6. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and place the saucepan under the hot grill, removing the Ingenio handle. Cook until the cheese is browned and bubbling.

  • Step 7. Remove the pan from under the grill using the removable handle. Transfer to the table and serve from the pan with a crispy green salad.

  • If there are any leftovers, you can use the Ingenio hermetic lids to store in the fridge.
