  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Place the garlic slices and oil in a casserole dish and bake until golden. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C.
  • Add onion, salt and pepper to the casserole dish. Place the 2 havarti blocks in the dish, top with macaroni and pour the cream and a cup of water over.
  • Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until cooked, stirring every 10 minutes so the pasta is evenly coated with the cheese mixture.
  • Give the dish a final stir before serving.
  • Enjoy!
