Two-Cheese Mac 'n Cheese Recipe

Two-Cheese Mac 'n Cheese Recipe

A lot of stories claim that mac and cheese was created by Thomas Jefferson, Marco Polo or the cooks of China. My favorite theory? An Italian housewife invented it to introduce non-Italian Americans to macaroni. —Stephanie Sorbie, Glendale, Arizona
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:15 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) spiral pasta
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced, optional
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash salt
  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • 5 cups (20 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup shredded Asiago cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, cook pasta according to package directions.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic if desired; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in flour, pepper and salt until blended; cook and stir until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk, stirring until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook 2 minutes longer or until thickened.
  • 3. Remove from heat. Stir in 4 cups cheddar cheese and Asiago cheese until melted. Mixture will thicken.

"I topped with panko breadcrumbs before baking. My kids and I liked the texture and flavor of this mac n cheese. The asiago was expensive, though, and I'm not sure how much that flavor came through."
