SW recipe: Duo mushrooms Macaroni cheese

Serves 4


Ready in about 1 hour


50g dried porcini mushrooms

200g dried macaroni, or any other short-shaped pasta

Low-calorie cooking spray

300g portobello mushrooms, cut into large chunks

16 baby leeks, sliced

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

200g cherry tomatoes

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh chives

400g fat-free natural fromage frais

½ tsp mustard powder, mixed with ½ tsp water

160g reduced-fat Cheddar, grated

2 medium eggs, lightly beaten

1 tsp sweet smoked paprika

Cucumber ribbons, to serve


1 Place the dried porcini mushrooms in a small heatproof bowl and pour over 200ml boiling water. Cover and leave to soak for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the pack instructions, then drain and set aside.

2 Drain the porcini mushrooms through a fine sieve, reserving the liquid. Roughly chop and set aside.

3 Preheat your oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Spray a large, non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the portobello mushrooms and leeks and fry for 6-8 minutes, or until softened and lightly browned.

4 Stir in the garlic, reserved porcini mushrooms, tomatoes and 150ml of the reserved porcini liquid and bring to the boil. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until most of the liquid is absorbed.

5 Stir in the chives and cooked pasta. Season, then transfer to a shallow, medium ovenproof dish. Whisk together the fromage frais, mustard, Cheddar, eggs and paprika, and drizzle over the top to cover evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden. Divide between 4 plates and serve with the cucumber ribbons.

These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.
