Mac And Cheese Recipe

So, let’s break down this sensational recipe step by step..


450 grams Small Elbow Macaroni Noodles

Salt, for Pasta water

1 Medium White Onion, grated

1 Red Bell Pepper, julienned

6 Spring Onions, chopped

¼ cup Yellow Mustard

¼ cup Ketchup

1 ½ tbsp Eaton’s Jamaican Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce

900 grams Colby Jack Cheese, shredded

1 cup Water


  1. Cook the macaroni noodles according to the package instructions in a large pot of salted water. Make sure they are cooked to al dente, then drain the water, reserving about ¼ cup of pasta water. Return the cooked macaroni to the pot.
  2. Stir in the grated white onion, julienned red bell pepper, and chopped spring onions into the pot with the macaroni. Mix them well to combine flavours.
  3. Now comes the unique twist: add the yellow mustard, ketchup, and Eaton’s Jamaican Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce to the pot. This combo of condiments will give the dish its signature flavour. Don’t be shy; mix everything thoroughly to ensure every noodle gets a taste of this saucy delight.
  4. It’s cheese time! Slowly add the shredded Colby Jack cheese to the pot, a handful at a time. Stir regularly, allowing the cheese to melt and create a luscious, creamy sauce. If the sauce seems too stiff, add some water to reach your desired consistency.
  5. As the cheese melts and the flavours meld together, you’ll notice the magic happening. The tangy ketchup, zesty mustard, and fiery Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce will elevate the cheesy goodness to a whole new level.
  6. Once your mac and cheese are perfectly combined and the sauce is velvety smooth, it’s time to serve. Top the dish with some more chopped spring onions for a fresh burst of colour and flavour.
  7. Gather your friends and family, because this mac and cheese is meant to be shared! Serve it up hot and watch their faces light up with delight as they savour the unique taste of ‘Mac and Rih.’
