Macaroni Gratin

Recipe by Sackville
READY IN: 30mins




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