45 ml


short cut macaroni


leeks, chopped

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Cook the macaroni in plenty of boiling salted water for 8-10 minutes, until tender. Drain well. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the leeks and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes. Stir in the flour, cook for 1 minute, then remove the pan from the heat. Gradually stir the milk into the pan, then return to the heat and bring to the boil, stirring. Simmer for about 3 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in the macaroni and most of the cheese, and season to taste. Pour the macaroni mixture into a baking dish. Mix together the breadcrumbs and the remaining cheese, then sprinkle over the dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the topping is golden.
