Mac and Cheese

500 g maccaroni
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
500 ml milk
175 g cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
125 ml creme fraiche
fresh ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup bread crumbs
butter to dot

Boil pasta according to directions (boil long enough or pasta will absorb too much of sauce and get dry), and put in baking dish. In the mean time, melt butter and cook flour without it browning. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly. Bring to simmer while stirring and cook for 1 minute. Slowly add cheeses without allowing to resimmer. Add seasonings and creme fraiche. Pour over pasta. Top with bread crumbs and dot with butter. Bake in preheated over at 150C for 10-15 minutes until hot.

Can also add crumbled bacon and/or jalapenos.

Serves 6-8 as a side.
