  6. Remove the sauce from the hob, add the cheddar and the fontina and stir until it is well combined and melted. Take off the heat and then add the eggs and stir to combine.

  7. Add the macaroni to the sauce and mix well. Transfer half to the to the bundt tin and press down well.

  8. Add slices of the cooking mozzarella around the whole of the bundt tin and then top with the remaining pasta and sauce.

  9. Pack down and flatten with a spatula or the back of a spoon then sprinkle over the mozzarella and Doritos and place the dish in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes.
