I’ve finally mastered homemade mac and cheese (bold statement, I know). Though I’m a sucker for Kraft blue box, it can’t touch the pasta made from scratch. I kept this recipe relatively simple, only adding crispy prosciutto and fresh parsley. But if you’re looking for something more gourmet, give this recipe a try–four-cheese, white truffle oil and mushroom mac and cheese. Yes, it’s as decadent and rich as it sounds.
Ever since my last attempt at baked macaroni and cheese, I’ve wanted to give the dish another go. Though I was satisfied with the result, I knew I could do better. I was finally inspired to create a different recipe after tasting the white truffle oil and mushroom mac & cheese from Taste on Melrose (aka the best macaroni and cheese I’ve ever eaten). I had to recreate the pasta.
The conchiglie shells and truffle oil transform the average macaroni and cheese into a gourmet, grown-up dish. The shells guarantee gooey cheese upon every bite and the truffle oil adds a delicious dimension of flavor.
If you’ve gathered from previous posts, truffle oil is my current obsession. So, in my eyes, there’s no way this dish wouldn’t be a hit–and a hit it was. :)
