Creamy mushroom mac ’n cheese

By TASTE, 16 April 2020

Change up your regular mac ’n cheese routine by trying out this delicious mushroom version with its decadent cheese sauce.


Preheat the oven to 200°C. For the cheese sauce, first make some infused milk by lightly simmering 2 cups of milk with 2 garlic cloves, some fresh thyme and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg, until fragrant. Strain the milk. In a saucepan, combine 6 T butter with 6 T flour and cook for a minute or two. Gradually add the infused milk and stir until it’s thick and smooth. Season to taste, then add 300 g grated mature Gouda. Fry 250 g portabellini mushrooms in 1 T ghee, olive oil or butter, until soft and tender. Place 500 g cooked pasta in an ovenproof dish. Add the mushrooms and the cheese sauce and stir through. Sprinkle with more grated Gouda, drizzle with truffle-infused olive oil and bake for 20-25 minutes in the oven until golden and bubbling.

Shop mushrooms at Woolworths.
