  • So I tried this cheese macaroni in a packet which was pretty cheap, being Tesco’s own brand and although I enjoyed it and I would buy it again, it is not a gourmet macaroni cheese
  • The pieces of macaroni are small and thin, which I prefer to fat macaroni for some reason
  • I ate all of it and I enjoyed it, but if I buy it again, I think I will add a bit of double cream which should improve its flavour and make it creamy as it is supposed to be
  • This is suitable for vegetarians and one packet (which I found just right for one person) contains 250 calories if made without the butter, but I would not advise losing the butter

      Although I can cook my own cheese macaroni and make the sauce from scratch, I occasionally buy one of these lazy, dried meals in a packet so I can whip up something quickly to eat when I get back from shopping. So I tried this cheese macaroni in a packet which was pretty cheap, being Tesco’s own brand and although I enjoyed it and I would buy it again, it is not a gourmet macaroni cheese. You are supposed to make it with milk and water and although I added a greater proportion of milk

      than I was supposed to, it was still not very creamy and had a very intense flavour for macaroni cheese.

      The pieces of macaroni are small and thin, which I prefer to fat macaroni for some reason. When the dish was cooked, on the plate it looked a slightly fluorescent-looking shade of yellow which was strange, rather than a creamy yellow. The flavour of it was, as I say, an intense cheese flavour that was not exactly like cheddar but it tasted natural despite being so intense and I could taste the onion. I ate ...


      • all of it and I enjoyed it, but if I buy it again, I think I will add a bit of double cream which should improve its flavour and make it creamy as it is supposed to be. It contains powdered cheese, powdered onion, powdered garlic and yeast extract.

        Cooking it is very simple as you can do it on the hob or in the microwave as I did, just adding milk, water and a bit of butter. In the microwave for example you cook it on full for 4 minutes, stir and cover

        and cook it for another 4 minutes and then leave it to stand.

        This is suitable for vegetarians and one packet (which I found just right for one person) contains 250 calories if made without the butter, but I would not advise losing the butter. Anything to make this more creamy. So in summary, despite its funny colour this does not contain artificial colourings or flavourings and although it could do with being much more creamy and so this is not a gourmet macaroni cheese, it has a nice flavour and I would buy it again.
