Gourmet Mac n’ Cheese
Recipe type: Entree
  • 1 pound dry rotini pasta
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 cups of light cream
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar
  • ½ cup shredded provolone
  • ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • ¼ cup smoked Gouda
  • 1 small onion, diced & caramelized
  • ½ cup bacon, cooked & crumbled
  • ¼ cup chopped chives or scallions
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Simply cook your rotini in salted water and then drain — but do not rinse or chill!
  2. Toss the stick of butter with the hot pasta in a large bowl.
  3. Once butter is melted, add all your cheeses.
  4. As they start to melt, add your cream.
  5. Return to a medium heat and stir until it’s all blended and you have a creamy cheese sauce.
  6. Toss in the cooked bacon, onion and chives.
  7. To enhance this dish, put it in a casserole and top it with butter panko breadcrumbs and bake at 400 F for 5 minutes or until crumbs become golden!
