Mascarpone and Sharp Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese

Mascarpone and Sharp Cheddar Mac

A quick, easy take on a classic!  This easy, creamy macaroni and cheese uses Mascarpone and cheddar cheese mixed in milk to create a silky smooth sauce for a quick and delicious dinner - ready in less than 20 minutes!
  • 16oz uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 container (8 ounces) mascarpone
  • 8 ounces Two Year Sharp Cheddar cheese, finely shredded (2 cups)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain. Keep warm.
2. Meanwhile, melt butter with cream over medium heat, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat to low; gradually stir in mascarpone and cheddar until melted.
3. Stir in macaroni.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.



- Adjust the age of the Cheddar cheese to your personal preference - want it sharper?  Try it with 5 Year Aged Cheddar!  Looking for something a little milder?  Use our Medium Aged Cheddar - aged about 6-9 months.

- If you have a little extra time, top with some buttered panko breadcrumbs and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until the mixture bubbles for a delicious added crunch!
