    cakeinmyface's Note:

    I adapted this from Nigella's de lux mac and cheese from her Christmas book. Her recipe makes a lot. I have cut this down a little and messed with the evaporated milk quantities- she calls for 3 x 170g mini tins of evaporated milk. Well in my part of the world we can get evaporated milk in 410g cans, so rather than put a part can of evaporated milk back in fridge I plonked it all in and reduced down semi skimmed milk. Evaporated milk sounds gross, but it really makes the creaminess of the recipe. Everyone loves this recipe especially at Christmas with baked ham. I also added broccoli, but you can add whatever veg/ham etc you like.
