Ultimate Side Mac & Cheese

Serves 2 | with Aged Cheddar

The ultimate side for any occasion! Extra creamy homemade mac & cheese is so much better than the box stuff – especially when you drizzle it with spicy sriracha and sprinkle crispy onions over top.

Instructions

Cook cavatappi
1

Before starting, add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Add cavatappi to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8-9 min. Reserve 2 tbsp pasta water, then drain and return cavatappi to the same pot, off heat.

Start cheese sauce
2

While cavatappi cooks, peel, then mince garlic. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp butter, then garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 2-3 min. Sprinkle flour over top. Cook, stirring often, until toasted, 1 min.

Finish cheese sauce
3

Add milk to the pan with butter and flour. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly, 1-2 min. Slowly add cheese, stirring constantly, until combined, 1 min. Remove the pan from the heat. Set aside.

Finish and serve
4

Add reserved pasta water and cavatappi to the pan with cheese sauce. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to coat. Divide mac and cheese between bowls. Top with crispy shallots. Drizzle over sriracha, if desired.
