Method

Ingredients

  • ½ brown onion, diced 
  • 2 cups dried macaroni  
  • 4 ½ cups milk 
  • ½ cauliflower, cut into small pieces 
  • 1 courgette, peeled and grated 
  • 1 parsnip, peeled and grated 
  • 4 Tbsp Olive oil

  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese 
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs  
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese 
     
 

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius fan bake. In a large saucepan, combine the onion, macaroni, milk and cauliflower. Place over a low to medium heat, and stir constantly while cooking for 5 minutes then stir in the courgette and parsnip and cook for a further 2-3 minutes or until the macaroni is tender.  
  2. Stir the oil and flour together to form a paste, then spoon into the pasta and stir while cooking for a final 2-3 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Fold the grated cheese through the pasta, season to taste with salt and pepper, then transfer to a baking dish.  
  3. Toss the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl, then sprinkle over the pasta. Place into the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and bubbling. Remove from the oven and leave to sit for 5 minutes before serving.
