Hello

I've made the Mac & cheese recipe from recipe community twice now and just can't get it right.

Its really easy and should work but wondering if I'm using the wrong cheese. The first time I used Tasty cheese but thought it was a bit bland - the second time I used parmesan for the stronger flavour and it ended up looking a bit like cottage cheese.

Any advice for this newbie please?

When I make Mac and cheese, I essentially make a white sauce and then add my cheese of choice. Usually I use 3 cheeses for the depth of flavour - a mature cheddar or gruyere, a melty cheese like mozzerella and a Parmesan.

In the TMX, I would make the white sauce and the add the reasonably finely grated cheese in the final minute or so. Possibly even with the heat off so it didnt over heat the cheese causing it to separate and go all oily. There should be enough residual heat to melt grated cheese.

My other additions are usually nutmeg, white pepper and Dijon mustard.  I would add those before the cheese. Then mix through pasta, top with more cheese and bake.
