  • Step 1

    Quarter your mushrooms. Add to a pan with a splash of olive oil. Fry until brown, and then add the sliced garlic and a handful of sliced thyme leaves. Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice in. Mix everything together. Once the garlic begins to go brown, remove everything from the bowl and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Into the pan, add 5 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 tablespoons of plain flour. Whisk it together. Then start adding your whole milk, bit by bit, whisking it in. Keep adding milk until you have a smooth white sauce.

  • Step 3

    Get your macaroni cooking – follow pack instructions.

  • Step 4

    At this point, crumble in the mozzarella and 100g of the taleggio. Stir it in until it melts, and you have a smooth white sauce.

  • Step 5

    Re-add your mushrooms and add small bunch of parsley. Mix it in.

  • Step 6

    At this point, drain your cooked macaroni and add to the sauce. Mix it in. Season with salt and pepper and add a big squeeze of lemon juice. Smooth out the top of the mac and cheese, and then add your remaining taleggio.

  • Step 7

    Place under the grill until the taleggio is golden and bubbling.

  • Step 8

    Remove from the oven, serve it up, scatter over some more chopped parsley and enjoy!
