Let's start cooking!

Macaroni poured into pot of water

Step 1 - Boil macaroni

  • Preheat oven to 220°C.
  • In a pot filled with water, add macaroni and boil according to package instructions, but for 5 minutes only. Remove, drain and set aside.
The macaroni will cook further in the chicken broth/cream, so boil in water for a shorter time until its al dente, or slightly hard to the bite

  • Add chicken broth and cream, then stir well. Bring to a boil, and allow to bubble away for 5 minutes, until reduced.
  • Add drained macaroni and stir. Season to taste with salt, sugar, and white pepper, then remove from heat.
