Recipe by: Nicole Snelling
400g Macaroni Pasta, cooked
6 Simply Chicken Cheese Grillers
2 Cups Milk
200g Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 Cup Peas
50g Cake Flour
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Prepare the Simply Chicken Cheese Grillers according to package instructions and then cut them up into bite sized pieces.
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
In a sauce pot add the butter and flour, cook for 1-2 minutes before slowing adding the milk. Make sure to whisk continuously while pouring the milk. Cook the sauce for 6-8 minutes until thickened and then remove from the heat and stir in half the cheese until incorporated. Season the sauce with salt and pepper.
Add the pasta to a baking dish, add the sauce, peas and chopped cheese griller and mix until combined. Add the remaining cheese on the top and place into the oven to cook for 25-30 minutes until the cheese has turned golden brown in colour.
Chefs Tip: If peas aren’t preferred, use carrots, corn, mushrooms or any other veggies!
