Truffle Mac & Cheese 


  • 1 pound ditalini or elbow pasta
  • 1/4 cup truffle butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups shredded Havarti cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup soft whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons truffle butter, melted


Preheat oven to 400 F. Butter a 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish and set aside. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, melt 1/4 cup of the truffle butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, salt, and pepper; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the milk and the cream and bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring with a wire whisk. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente. Drain well. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce in the saucepan along with the three kinds of cheeses. Mix gently, then pour into the prepared baking dish. Combine the bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons of the melted truffle butter in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the macaroni and cheese mixture in the dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the macaroni mixture is bubbly and the breadcrumbs begin to brown. Enjoy
