Eat This: Awesome Mac and Cheese

Mac and Cheese COllage

Even though it’s been in the 80s here, it’s still only February, so I feel entitled to eat comfort food. 😉

A friend made this for me a few years back after I had Ash and it has been a favorite in our house ever since. The kids like to call it “fancy mac and cheese” since it isn’t orange and doesn’t come out of a box. Even better, it’s super easy and FAST!  It’s great as a side dish, or on it’s own.

Yield: 8 servings

Fancy Mac and Cheese

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 12 oz Wide Egg Noodles
  • 3 C Whipping Cream
  • 1 1/2 C Whole Milk
  • 2T Flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (i use white pepper so it doesn't ruin the look of the white mac)
  • 2 C grated, packed Fontina Cheese
  • 3/4 C grated paremsan
  • 3/4 C grated mozarella

*optional add green peas*

  • **My tweaks..I TRY to make this a little healthier by making these adjustments:
  • instead of 3 C of heavy cream I use 3C of fat free milk
  • instead of 1 1/2 C of whole milk I use 1 1/2 cups half and half


  1. I haven't noticed that switching the ingredients and amounts really makes much of a difference except that it cuts the calories and fat WAY down. 🙂
  2. Cook noodles in Salted water until tender but firm..abou 5-6 minutes. Drain. Do not rinse. Whisk cream, milk, flour, salt, pepper in a bowl. Add 1C of Fontina, 1/2 C parmesan, 1/2 C mozarella. Add noodles and stir. Transfer all to a baking dish. Toss remaining noodles and spread oer top of noodles. Bake until bubbles and cheese browns (about 20-25 minutes) at 450 degrees.
  3. Let stand 10 minutes and enjoy!! 🙂
