    Sackville's Note:

    Homemade mac 'n' cheese always beats the stuff in a box and this version is easy enough to whip up at short notice.

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
    2. 2
      In a large pot, bring 2 liters of water to a boil with a bit of salt and add the pasta.
    3. 3
      Cook for 8 minutes.
    4. 4
      Drain by lifting it out of the water and immediately coat with the olive oil.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, take a broad oven proof dish-- wide enough to comfortably fit two layers of pasta.
    6. 6
      If it is too small the pasta will be too deep and only a small portion of it will be"au gratin".
    7. 7
      Rub the inside of the dish hard with the clove of garlic, cut in half.
    8. 8
      In a bowl, mix the pasta with the cream and cheese.
    9. 9
      Season with salt and pepper and pour into the ovenproof dish.
    10. 10
      Dot the surface with butter and put into the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.
    11. 11
      When it is done you should have a wonderful golden gratin.
    12. 12
      If you want more colour, you can pop the gratin under the grill for a minute or so.

      This was a really good, mild-flavored macaroni dish. I made this as written, but doubled the cheese, using half gruyere and half swiss. I loved how the top got nice and browned. I think this goes best with a bold-flavored meat or main dish. I think next time, I'd add some fresh herbs and maybe a spice such as nutmeg or dry mustard or paprika just to perk up the flavor a tad. I'd also double the recipe. :) Thanx!

      Good for when you are a hurry and you don't really have that much cheese. This fed 2 adults and a toddler who loves pasta but it really could have been doubled as the serving sizes are standard servings.
