HRH's Favourite Macaroni & Cheese

HRH's Favourite Macaroni & Cheese
From: Dottygumdrop

1½ cups dried macaroni
1 tablespoon cornflour/corn starch
1 cup milk
100ml thickened cream
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup grated/shredded processed cheese (eg. Velveeta)
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Cook macaroni according to taste (I prefer al dente, since it will cook a little more in the sauce) and drain (DO NOT RINSE).
2. Mix the cornflour with a couple of tablespoons of the milk.
3. In a jug, mix the rest of the milk with the cream and the mustard.
4. Pour the milk/cream mix into a saucepan and warm over medium heat until almost boiling, then add the honey.
5. Add the cheese and stir until the cheese has completely melted into the sauce.
6. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add in the cornflour mix, stirring as the sauce thickens.
7. Finally, add the drained macaroni into the sauce and stir until thoroughly coated.
8. Serve with whatever takes your fancy (or just eat it on its own, by the bowlful!).

HRH scoffed down a bowlful of it for lunch, with some flaked tuna mixed in!
