Mac & Cheese With Corn & Ham Gratin

My kids love pasta, hence my excitement when I saw this recipe at Let's Get Wokking
I immediately gave a try and it's so well accepted by my family :)


 
 
So creamy so yummy :)
 



What you need:
(I modified a little)

240g macaroni
200g chopped ham
a few handfuls of frozen sweet corns
8 tbsp parmesan cheese

For the sauce:
60g butter
200ml fresh milk
200ml cream
480ml water
4 tbsp plain flour
200g grated cheddar cheese

Method:
  1. Cook macaroni in salted water according to the package or till just done, pour them in a oven proof dish and set aside
  2. Melt butter in a pan on low heat, gradually add in the flour and whisk till smooth
  3. Turn up the heat to medium low and gradually add in the milk and cooking cream while whisking, repeat the same for the water
  4. Add in the ham, followed by corn
  5. Add in the cheese in the sauce till melted and all has blended in
  6. Pour the sauce over the cooked macaroni, you may mix them
  7. Top it with parmesan cheese
  8. Bake in preheated oven of 220degC til golden brown, about 30 minutes (baking time is shorter if using smaller baking dish)
