Best Mac And Cheese

           We enjoy being creative with macaroni and cheese. This version was fun and easy to make and with having a picky eater in the home, she had seconds.


1lb              Radiatore Noodles

1/4c            Butter

1/3c            Flour (for roux)

1&1/2c       Milk

1c               Heavy Cream

1&1/2tsp    Kosher Salt

1/2tsp         Ground Garlic

1/4tsp         Ground Coriander

1/2tsp         White Pepper

1                  Bayleaf

4oz             Cream Cheese

3c               Cheddar Cheese(shredded)


– Prepare pasta according to pkg directions.

– In another medium sized saucepan.

– Melt butter- Add flour and cook for 3 minutes.

– Add milk, cream, and seasonings.

– Bring to a boil, mixing to prevent lumps.

– Add cheeses and mix til smooth.

– Add cheese sauce to noodles and mix well.

When serving, top with a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese and a few bacon bits. This does make a large family portion size. I enjoyed it so much I couldn’t resist another 2nd helping.
