Beemster Mac 'n Cheese Italian Style

Main course. 2 persons. Preparation 35 min.


  • 40 g salami
  • 60 g cherry tomatoes
  • 5 g basil
  • 180 g macaroni
  • 25 g salted butter
  • 30 g flour
  • 250 ml whole milk
  • 100 g Beemster Jong 48+, grated
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 60 g Beemster Jong Belegen 48+, grated
  • 40 g black olives, sliced


  1. Preheat the grill to 180 degrees. Slice the salami and quarter the tomatoes. Pick the leaves off the basil sprigs. Cook the macaroni as directed on the package.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Once the butter is melted, add the flour. Stir with a whisk until the butter is fully incorporated. Let the flour cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Slowly pour the milk into the pan and allow the flour-butter mixture to dissolve while stirring. Bring to a boil while stirring. Add the young cheese to the mixture and remove the pan from the heat. Stir until the cheese is dissolved and season the sauce with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and stir well. Divide the pasta between two bowls and spread the salami on top. Put the Mac 'n Cheese under the grill for 5 minutes for a crispy cheese crust.
  4. Top the Mac 'n Cheese Italian style with the olives, tomatoes, Young Belegen cheese and basil leaves.
