Side Dish



50g butter

3tbsp plain flour

1L whole milk

200g mature cheddar cheese, grated

1tsp Dijon Mustard

100g goat’s cheese

600g dried pasta/macaroni

3tbsp Rose Harissa, let down with a bit of water

60g bread pulled into chunks

40ml Early Harvest Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Thyme leaves

100g Parmesan, grated

Small handful of Cornichons, sliced

Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Set the oven to 200C/Fan 180C/Gas Mark 6. On a low heat, melt the butter and flour in a saucepan then add the milk while whisking continuously. Remove the pan from the heat and add the grated cheddar, mustard and goats cheese, stirring until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside until later.
  2. Put a large heavily salted pan of water on a high heat. Add the Pasta and par boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and drain.
  3. Add the pasta to the cheese sauce and mix well, add some of the pasta cooking water if needed to make a nice runny consistency. Pour the mix into a oven-proof dish and drop pools of Rose Harissa evenly on top of the pasta.
  4. Toss the bread chunks in Early Harvest olive oil and thyme leaves, spread on top of the mix. Finish the toppings by evenly covering with grated Parmesan.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Before serving sprinkle with sliced Cornichons.
