  1. Cook the macaroni according to the packet instructions, adding the leeks for the last 3 minutes of the cooking time. Drain and return to the pan.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium-high.
  3. Put the quark, stock, onion granules, garlic, mustard powder, chives and three-quarters of the cheese in a small pan and whisk to mix together. Heat gently until the mixture is fairly smooth and season well. Stir the sauce into the drained macaroni and leek and toss to mix well.
  4. Spoon the macaroni mixture into four individual heatproof dishes arranged on a baking tray (or use a shallow casserole dish). Sprinkle over the remaining cheese, season and grill for 4 minutes or until golden and bubbling. Serve hot with salad or vegetables of your choice.

If you want to lose weight, cut out the full fat cheese and cream, Sally. Have you seen the losses people have on Slimming World? Far more than on the full fat cheese and cream diet. But thanks for your really helpful comment on the recipe. If only we could all be so erudite.

Add some cream and FULL fat cheese and it would be much nicer! Also, a bit of advice, if you want to lose weight, cut down on the pasta!!! Carbs make you fat, not fat!!
