1 bunch of parsley, chopped
1 tsp dried thyme
250 g button mushrooms, sliced
400 g elbow macaroni
200 g cheddar cheese, grated
100 g cream cheese
2 cloves of garlic, minced
750 ml whole milk
1/2 lemon, juiced
4 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 tbsp butter
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste


Preheat your grill to a medium-high setting.
Cook the elbow macaroni according to the package instructions until al dente, then drain and set aside.
In a large pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and dried thyme, cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir in the all-purpose flour to form a roux, cooking for another minute.
Gradually pour in the whole milk, whisking constantly to prevent lumps, until the sauce thickens.
Lower the heat and add the grated cheddar cheese and cream cheese to the pan, stirring until the cheeses melt into a smooth sauce.
Season the cheese sauce with salt, black pepper, and lemon juice to taste.
In a separate pan, sauté the sliced mushrooms in a bit of butter or oil until they are browned and tender.
Add the cooked mushrooms and half of the chopped parsley to the cheese sauce, mixing well.
Fold the cooked macaroni into the mushroom cheese sauce until evenly coated.
Transfer the macaroni mixture to a baking dish, smoothing out the top.
Place the baking dish under the grill for 3-5 minutes, or until the top is golden and bubbly.
Remove from the grill, garnish with the remaining chopped parsley, and serve hot.
