Cajun Crumbed Turkey Mac 'n' Cheese

Cajun Crumbed Turkey Mac 'n' Cheese
  • Serves: 6
  • Preparation time: 40 minutes

Method

  • Pre-heat oven to 180º
  • Cook the pasta according to back of pack directions, then cool under running water. Drain well, and set to one side.
  • In a large pan, gently heat the butter, and stir in 2 tsp of the Cajun seasoning. Stir continuously, and add in the flour. Cook to a sandy colour.
  • Slowly add the milk a little at a time, while whisking to prevent it sticking.
  • When the milk is all incorporated, reduce the heat and add the mustard, Cheddar cheese, smoked paprika and cream (if using).
  • When the cheese has melted and the sauce is glossy, take off heat and add the drained pasta, Roast Turkey Breast Chunks and cherry tomatoes.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the breadcrumbs, grated parmesan and the last tsp of Cajun seasoning.
  • Transfer pasta into an oven proof dish, and cover with the breadcrumb mix and bake at 180º for 20 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve with tossed, dressed, green salad and wedges of garlic bread
