Sorry I haven't uploaded in over a week. I got caught up with school. But here is a new recipe and I LOVE this recipe! Its like super creamy and yum. Its so so nice its like my favorite lunch! Lets get to the recipe. Also this recipe is a little tricky so you should probably get someone to help you.

Serves 4.

What you need:

250g pasta shapes,

1/4 tsp salt,

55g butter,

40g plain flour,

450g milk,

125g cheddar cheese,

125g cooked ham, roughly chopped,

4 cherry tomatoes (optional),

salt and freshly ground black pepper,

25g parmesan cheese.


  1. Preheat the oven to 200℃/gas mark 6/392℉. Heat some water in a large saucepan. Add salt and bring to a boil.

  2. Add pasta carefully, making sure not to splash. Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions.

  3. Gently melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat. add flour and mix well. Cook mixture for 1 min and then remove from the heat.

  4. Stir in the milk, a little at a time, to make a smooth sauce. Put pan back on heat. Stir while it thickens so it doesn't go lumpy.

  5. When the sauce boils, turn down heat and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix the cheddar, ham and tomatoes. Season.

  6. Drain the pasta. Mix with the sauce. Place in ovenproof dish and sprinkle with parmesan. Bake in oven, on a baking tray, for 20-25 minutes.
