    I managed to get this recipie after looking for ages, but it does not state anything about EE plan.

    Macaroni Cheese
    • 2 leeks, thinly sliced
    • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
    • 300g (11oz) cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 200g (7oz) frozen peas
    • 2 tbsp finely chopped chives
    • 100ml (3 1/2 floz) water
    • 400g (14oz) cooked macaroni or other short-shape pasta
    For the topping
    • 500g (1lb 2oz) very low fat natural yogurt
    • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
    • 175g (6oz) reduced fat Cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 4 tbsp very finely chopped parsley
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • Place a large, non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Add the leeks, garlic, tomatoes, peas, chives and water, stir together and cook for 6-8 minutes, until the water has been absorbed.
    • Stir the cooked pasta into the tomato mixture, then transfer to a shallow, ovenproof dish.
    • Preheat the oven to 220C/Gas 7. Mix all the topping ingredients in a bowl, season well and pour over the pasta mixture. Place in the oven and cook for 15-20 mins, or until lightly golden and bubbling. Allow to stand for 5 mins before serving. Accompany with a crisp green salad.
    Thanks Lisa x
