  • 60 ml (4 tbsp.) butter

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Grease a 23 cm (9 in) spring form pan with 15 ml (1 tbsp.) of butter. Place the pan in the refrigerator so that the butter will congeal and better hold the macaroni.
  • In a large saucepan of boiling water, cook the macaroni until al dente, around 20 minutes. Rinse and let cool.
  • Distribute the macaroni in the pan, covering the bottom and forming a base layer.
  • In a saucepan, melt the remaining butter and sauté the mushrooms and shallots until browned. Sprinkle with flour while stirring.
  • Add milk, stir, and continue cooking until the sauce thickens.
  • Add half of Agropur Grand Cheddar Réserve Spéciale and continue cooking until the cheese has melted and the mixture is homogeneous.
  • Add chicken and baby spinach. Stir well.
  • Pour this mixture into the macaroni pan.
  • Top with the remaining Agropur Grand Cheddar Réserve Spéciale and bake for approximately 30 minutes, until cheese is golden brown.
  • Remove from pan and serve with salad.
