Set some of the sautéed mushrooms aside.
Add the cake flour to the onion and mushroom mixture and stir-fry for 1 minute.
Remove from the heat and slowly add the milk while stirring continuously.
Heat until the sauce comes to the boil and thickens.
Add the cream and tomato purée.
Blend a little of the hot sauce with the beaten eggs, stirring well.
Season with mustard powder, salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Mix half the parsley and Cheddar cheese with the macaroni.
Turn the mixture into the prepared oven dish and pour the sauce over the macaroni.
