    Marjoram (Origanum majorana, syn. Majorana hortensis Moench, Majorana majorana (L.) H. Karst[2]) is a somewhat cold-sensitive perennial herb or undershrub with sweet pine and citrus flavors. In some Middle-eastern countries, marjoram is synonymous with oregano, and there the names sweet marjoram and knotted marjoram are used to distinguish it from other plants of the genus Origanum.

  • nutmeg

Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    I fry a couple of chicken breasts and some nice bacon, I tear the chicken and mix it with the bacon and put it at the bottom of the oven dish and pour the pasta on top. Awesome.

    Good but I honestly prefer a proper sauce mornay.

    I really liked this macaroni cheese recipe - good cheese flavour without the usual gloopy roux. I substituted bocconcini for mozzarella, cheddar for fontina, used about a cup of the pasta water and added panko crumbs to the top.

    This is a really lovely, easy alternative to the typical American style cheddar based macaroni and cheese. Even though there's little to dilute the pure cheesiness of the sauce, it's not as rich as some versions, and the addition of oregano and nutmeg add a subtle sophistication. I forgot to set aside some pasta water, so added a little milk instead. It's a good dish for all ages.

    This is quick to put together, added ham, substituted diced chives and basil for the oregeno (what I had). Yummy.
