I find i have to cook the macaroni and the mushroom pasta for alot longer than the sheet says. Last night i think it took ten minutes in total. I just do it a min at a time till i get it right. I thought it might just have been my micro xxx

The instructions do say at the bottom to leave the pasta dishes to soak in water for 5 mins before cooking. It's really small print though so I missed it for ages!

I make mine with just enough water to cover the bottom of a milk pan. Nice and thick, add in veg and herbs at the end x

I had a runny sauce with my first attempt. Tried again last night and my pasta was crunchy!!! I don't have a microwave so am doing everything on the hob. No problems with chilli, spaghett or curry. I guess I need to soak the mac cheese for longer - flavour is fab thou

SnS will not be reintroducing Mac&Cheese as it used to be - they've had problems sourcing the pasta. They will be making a 'Cheesy Pasta' instead. :)

HOWEVER - if you google SML diet, they have something identical to the SnS Mac&Cheese - the pasta takes a little bit longer to cook, but taste is the same.

I always turn my microwave power level down to half and honesty it works a treat then! You can also cook it on the hob, you add 110-130ml cold water stir until mixed and simmer for 5-6 minutes stirring regulary. I hope this has helped?!? xoxo
