  • 350g macaroni or other short dried pasta
  • 50g butter
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 bunch spring onions (sliced)
  • 1litre of semi-skimmed milk
  • 125g grated extra-mature cheddar
  • 50g grated Parmesan
  • 1½tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 200g spinach
  • 250g cherry tomatoes (halved)

Method

Firstly you will need to fire up your wood fired oven to it’s optimum temperature, then leave to cool to roughly 180°c-200°c. Whilst your oven is cooling, cook your pasta in boiling salty water and when tender, drain.

Now you can move onto your cheese sauce. Start by putting the butter, flour, spring onions and milk in a pan and slowly bring to the boil, whisking until thick. Simmer for a few minutes, season and stir in the cheddar, half the Parmesan and mustard. Finally add in your spinach so it wilts into the sauce.

Next mix the sauce and pasta together and put into your high heat oven dish. Scatter over the tomatoes and remaining Parmesan. Simply bake in your wood fired oven for 25- 30 minutes, or until your Macaroni cheese is golden brown in colour. Serve with a fresh leafy salad. Delicious!
