Method

00:20
 
In a large saucepan, melt the butter.
Add the flour and whisk until a roux (thick paste-like mixture) is formed. Allow to cook for 1 minute.
Slowly start adding the milk mixture and whisk continuously. Allow to gently simmer until the sauce is thick and the flour taste has disappeared.
Take off the heat and add the cheeses and spices.
Allow the cheese to melt and check the seasoning. Don’t add salt before you’ve tasted as the cheese might have been salty enough.
Mix the sauce with the cooked macaroni and transfer to a suitable baking dish.
Scatter with the grated mozzarella and bake for 15-20 minutes at 180°C until the cheese is golden.
Allow to stand for 5 minutes and serve.
