To make this delicious Mac and Cheese for one, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 85 grams (3 ounces) of macaroni
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour
  • 150 milliliters (2/3 cup) of milk
  • 100 grams (1 cup) of shredded cheddar cheese

  • To make this dish even more indulgent, you can add some cooked bacon, sautéed mushrooms, or chopped cooked chicken to the mac and cheese.
