    Greek Macaroni & Cheese

    Think of this dish as the flavors of Greek spanakopita in a comforting baked macaroni and cheese. Gouda and Monterey Jack cheeses provide creamy texture, while staying in a supporting role to the pungent feta.

    Macaroni & Cheese with the Works

    Rustic and warming, this is a macaroni and cheese with the works: chunky tomato, mozzarella, and sweet Italian sausage.

    Bacon & Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese

    When looking for inspiration for my macaroni and cheeses, I turned to stuffed potatoes and omelets, believing that what works well with eggs and potatoes would be delicious with pasta, too. Boy, was I right! Bacon, Cheddar cheese, sour cream, and scallions are classic additions to stuffed potatoes, and with pasta they’re perfection.
