'Nduja Mac and Cheese

Servings 4


  • 500 g Pasta (macaroni; conchiglie is fun too)
  • Salt
  • 1/2 tin Evaporated Milk
  • 250 g Grated cheese
  • 4 tbsp 'Nduja


  • Place pasta in a large pot and cover with water. Salt generously (add enough salt so that you are slightly disgusted with yourself) and bring to a boil, stirring to prevent the pasta from sticking. Cook for around 6-7 minutes - pasta should be shy of al dente.
  • Reserve 200ml or so of pasta water and drain pasta before putting back into pot. Add evaporated milk, stir to combine, and bring to a boil. Add cheese, stir to combine, and then add 'nduja and stir.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring until the cheese has melted and the 'nduja is fully incorporated into the pasta. The liquid should reduce to a creamy sauce - if the cheese hasn't melted, keep stirring. If the sauce looks too thick, add some reserved pasta water. Taste for seasoning and serve.
