One Pot Pasta n Cheese

20 mins


2 cups dried pasta e.g. macaroni or penne

4 ½ cups Anchor Full Cream UHT Milk

1 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons Anchor Butter, softened 

2 tablespoons flour 

Freshly ground black pepper

6 slices streaky bacon, cooked until crisp and finely chopped (optional)

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

½ cup Anchor Culinary Cream

2 tablespoons chopped parsley


  1. Place the pasta in a medium-to-large saucepan with the milk and salt. Stir and bring to a gentle simmer, stir regularly so the pasta doesn’t stick to the base. Cook until just about tender (about 8 minutes).
  2. Mix the butter, flour and pepper together, then add to pasta, stirring until thickened. 
  3. Cook the pasta gently for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Add bacon and stir through the cheese and cream.
