Introduction

Rich and decadent, this is still mildly flavoured enough for my kids to like it, in spite of the strong cheese. Don't add salt to this, at least not before tasting it, as the cheeses are quite salty enough I find, and I like salty things. I don't have a measure for the parmesan here as I tend to just grate as I go. Adding some, stirring and then adding more as and if I think it needs it. A strong Cheddar could be used in it's place Any other short pasta can be used in place of the macaroni if preferred. Serves 4 generously with a leafy salad if desired. Light cream would work in this dish, it may just need to cook a little longer before it thickens.
