Macaroni Cheese Pasta Recipe

Macaroni Cheese Pasta Bake Recipe

I always have these ingredients in the house (pasta, flour and milk) so this a great standby-by recipe. Plus it only takes 20 minutes to make. I first remember my Best-Friend’s Mum making this when I was about six  - I always insisted on staying for dinner as the smell of it cooking under the grill was irresistible!

Prep and cooking time: Max 25 minutes 

Feeds: one adult and one baby


  • 140g pasta
  • 260ml milk
  • 30g plain flour
  • Desert spoon of Philidelphia 
  • tsp of wholegrain mustard* (optional)
  • 1 Apple
  • 30g grated cheese
  • Several cornflakes (yes, you read that correctly)
  • Half a cup of peas



  • Boil pasta
  • To make sauce: add flour and milk to pan, cook on a low heat, stir very frequently and as it gets warmer, try to stir constantly to ensure it doesn’t go lumpy.
  • Add Philadelphia and grated cheese (leave a little to sprinkle on the top), cook on low for a few more minutes. (Add mustard at this point if you'd like more of a kick).
  • Cut apple into slices, drain pasta. Then add pasta, sauce and apple together.
  • Pour into serving bowls, sprinkle over cheese and crushed cornflakes
  • Grill for a few mins until golden. Cook peas at the same time and serve in separate pots.

 Baby Led Weaning Recipe for Macaroni Cheese

Weaning: Can be given to babies from six-months-old.

Tip: Use Rigatoni pasta for baby-led weaning. The first time I made this, I made it with Macaroni thinking the smaller pasta would be a better size in my baby’s mouth – but she struggled to pick it up. 

Transfer pasta to a cold bowl for baby / children.
