Grilled Florentine Macaroni Cheese

  • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

Serves: 4


400g essential Waitrose Macarnoi
A knob of Lurpak butter
Crushed garlic
250g spinach
1.5 x 350g tub essential Waitrose Cheese Sauce
1-2 handfuls of 40g half-fat Cheddar


1. Cook 400g essential Waitrose Macaroni in a pan of boiling water for 12 minutes until tender.

2. Meanwhile, melt a knob of Lurpak Butter with Crushed Garlic in a large frying pan and add 250g spinach. Cook
for 3–4 minutes until wilted, keeping the heat high
so any liquid evaporates.

3. Drain the pasta and return to the pan. Stir in 1½ x 350g tub essential Waitrose Cheese Sauce then spoon half of the mixture into a heatproof dish. Lay the spinach on top then scatter with 1–2 handfuls of 40g half-fat Cheddar, grated.

4. Spoon on the rest of the macaroni cheese and
sprinkle with the remaining Cheddar. Pop under a low-medium grill for 5–10 minutes until bubbling and golden brown.
