Mac and Blue Cheese

Mac and Blue Cheese

If you think you have outgrown the Mac and Cheese then give this a shot, the grown up version of the classic. Using the same concept instead of using cheddar cheese this pasta uses some blue cheese to give it a more potent kick! I know it’s not for everyone but if you’re a blue cheese lover like me then give this a shot.

Blue cheese are not created equal so choose your favourite one when you make this at home, like me I am not a fan of other brands and my favourite ones are the Kikorangi and Kahurangi both mouldy like the usual blue cheese but the flavours is just amazing specially the Kahurangi which is so creamy and mildly sweet perfect with this dish.

    One should never get to big for mac & cheese! Have never ever made one with blue cheese. What a great idea! Thanks!

    Never quite acquired the taste for blue cheese, not usually available here and cheese, whatever kind, is so very expensive here…and very limited types.
