  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees and grate the cheeses if not already grated
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil, once the water is bubbling add the pasta
  3. Whilst the pasta boils make the white sauce. The first step is to melt the butter in a large pan then add the flour and whisk to combine. This creates a roux which is a paste like texture
  4. Slowly pour in the milk whilst whisking constantly to avoid lumps occurring
  5. Stir in the spices – pepper, salt and paprika
  6. Stir in a good handful of cheddar cheese
  7. Add the cooked pasta to the white sauce
  8. Pour half of the pasta into a baking dish and top with the 3-cheese mix of grated cheddar, mozzarella and gruyere
  9. Pour the rest of the pasta on top and cover with the rest of the grated cheeses
  10. Pop the mac n cheese into the oven for 15 minutes
  11. Whilst the mac n cheese cooks, fry off the Chicken Italia Burgers on medium heat for 15 minutes
  12. Take the mac n cheese out of the oven and assemble the burgers loading each burger bun with the burger and then the mac n cheese
