Easy Truffle Mac and Cheese is on the menu tonight! Rich, creamy and packed full of flavor, this Truffle Mac and Cheese is easy enough that you can whip it up in no time. Thank you to Kroger for sponsoring this delicious recipe.
While I make a lot of macaroni and cheese at my house, most of the time it’s really geared for the kids. Don’t get me wrong, it’s delicious, but it’s not always the most exciting cuisine for my husband and myself. Today’s macaroni and cheese is shaking that up in a majorly tasty way. May I present Easy Truffle Mac and Cheese. Yes, I did indeed say easy! This is the type of recipe that you can make on a busy weeknight while helping with homework, starting a load of laundry and catching up on the day with family. The end result however is much more we ” out for a nice dinner” than “cooking in sweats while quizzing a child on spelling words”.
Thanks to my local Kroger store’s Treasure EmporiYum, decadent Truffle Mac and Cheese can be on the menu quickly, and easily, any night of the week. Treasure EmporiYum is a trove of unique finds to tantalize taste buds! These carefully curated collection of delicious discoveries are exclusive to the Kroger Family of Stores.
This Easy Truffle Mac and Cheese only requires three ingredients, Private Selection Italian Cavatappi, Private Selection Truffle and Aged Cheddar Mac & Cheese Sauce and a splash of milk. You can make the entire recipe in one pot. While you can add additional cheddar or top it with bread crumbs, we found it to be perfect just the way it is. Pair it with a salad and you have an amazing dinner that is fit for serving to guests.
The Private Selection Truffle and Aged Cheddar Mac & Cheese Sauce is just one of the small batch mac and cheese sauces available in the Treasure EmporiYum. Artisanal macaroni and cheese can now be yours to enjoy in a snap (of a jar lid). With real cream, cheese and butter as the base, these sauces are crafted in small batches to deliver big flavor! Tantalize your taste buds with Truffle & Aged Cheddar, Roasted Poblano & Aged Cheddar, Roasted Onion, Thyme & Gruyere, and Bacon & Aged Cheddar.
The Treasure EmporiYum pasta is something special as well. Imported from the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, Private Selection® pastas are made with golden amber durum wheat semolina. They’re slow-dried to deliver fabulous flavor, golden color, and of course, texture to really grab hold of some sauce. The cavatappi, or corkscrews, scoop up more savory flavor with every swirl and are a perfect match for the yummy mac and cheese sauces.
