Lazy Days: The Ultimate One Pot Macaroni Cheese

This week we’re joined by Rachel Brady, family food blogger of Well Worn Whisk, who has shared her delicious recipe for the ultimate one-pot macaroni cheese. This scrumptiously quick and easy recipe is the perfect comfort food for those all important sofa moments so sit back, relax and indulge!

Serves: 4


350g Macaroni pasta
700ml Vegetable stock
125g Mascarpone cheese
200g Gruyere cheese, grated
75g Parmesan cheese, grated
125g Mozzarella (optional)
Pepper, to season


1. Bring a pan of stock to boil and add the pasta. Stir often to prevent sticking.

2. At about 8 minutes, tip in the grated Gruyere and the mascarpone. Stir to incorporate. Add the parmesan and stir again. You’ll think it’s too saucy at this stage, but the pasta soaks it up, I promise! Now cook, gently, until the pasta is al dente. It will take about 10 minutes.

3. Add the torn up mozzarella last of all and stir to melt it in. Don’t season with salt if using a commercial stock as they are very salty anyway. Pepper is fine.

4. Eat as is or add extras and place under a hot grill!
