Author JP Fortin


  • 300 g macaroni or other similar pasta
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1.5 cup milk
  • 1.25 cup grated orange cheddar
  • 0.25 cup parmesan
  • 3 tbsp pizza sauce


  1. As promised, this is a quick and easy recipe. First, cook the pasta.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour, mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes before adding ½ cup of milk. Mix the flour and milk well. It will have a thick consistency.

  3. Add the rest of the milk and bring to a boil while mixing. As soon as it starts to boil, reduce to low heat. Incorporate the pizza sauce and cheeses, mixing well until all the cheese is melted.

  4. By then the pasta should be cooked. Drain the pasta and combine with the cheese sauce.
