Christmas Mac Cheese


  1. Cook the pasta for around 6-8 minutes or until al dente, drain and reserve some of the pasta water. Rinse the pasta with cold water to cool completely and then drain again thoroughly.
  2. Pre heat the oven to 200 fan. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan over a medium heat. Add the chorizo and fry for 6-8 minutes until golden.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and put the flour into the pan. Mix well. It will look very claggy at this stage. Slowly, a splash at a time, pour in the milk and stir continuously until it’s gone. Carry on stirring for 5 minutes until you have a lovely smooth sauce.
  4. Now throw almost all of the cheese into the pan and add the harissa. Mix together really well and check the seasoning, adding salt to taste.
  5. Chuck the pasta and turkey into the sauce and mix well. Pour in 200-250ml of the pasta water to help loosen and keep the mac cheese super gooey. Transfer to a baking dish and top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is bubbling and golden. Serve immediately.
