Our 12 Best Mac and Cheese Recipes
Macaroni and cheese is a favourite any night of the week. Why not take a step away from your traditional recipe and try one of these delicious variations?
Baked Macaroni With Four Cheeses
This recipe calls for not just one but four delicious cheeses, including cream cheese and mozzarella. It’s the ultimate creamy, comfort food.
Creamy Mac and Cheese With Tomatoes
Extra creamy and bursting with flavour, this is an ooey, gooey treat the entire family will love.
Macaroni With Cheese and Ground Beef
This recipe has it all: fresh herbs, ground beef, chopped peppers and onion and, for a dose of creaminess, sour cream. What’s not to love?
Whole Wheat Macaroni and Cheese
Make your traditional mac and cheese a little better for you by substituting white pasta for whole wheat. This easy swap will help get your family a few extra nutritional benefits while still enjoying this classic meal.
Tuna Macaroni Bake
If you like tuna melts for lunch, then you’ll love this tuna macaroni and cheese for supper. Make your own simple cheese sauce and add in some tuna, fresh parsley, breadcrumbs, and black pepper and you’ve got a filling, tasty meal.
Mac and Cheese With Roasted Vegetables
Pump up the vitamins and minerals on this classic meal by adding some fresh roasted vegetables, such as tomatoes, broccoli, and cauliflower, and topping it off with your favourite cheese.
Bow Ties With Broccoli Florets and Goat Cheese
It’s not your traditional macaroni and cheese, but this cheesy pasta with broccoli and goat cheese just had to make it on this list. Once the goat cheese melts in with the rest of the ingredients, it makes for a tangy, rich meal.
Lentil Macaroni and Cheese
Lentils may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of macaroni and cheese, but they go surprisingly well together. Plus, lentils are a great source of fibre and protein, helping make this recipe a healthy choice.
Mushroom Macaroni and Cheese
Blue cheese is married with Cheddar, peas, red pepper and mushrooms in this inventive recipe. The distinctive taste of the cheese mixed with your favourite mushrooms will really mix up your weeknight meals.
Zippy Macaroni and Cheese
This is a fun twist on ordinary macaroni and cheese because it throws in cottage cheese, upping the calcium content in the dish, and adds a crunchy cornflake topping, which gives it a golden brown finish. Yum!
Speedy Mac and Goat Cheese
Using fresh pasta, this meal will be on the table in under 20 minutes. What makes it so quick is that it’s got just five ingredients. Don’t worry though, even though there’s no creamy cheese sauce, the melted goat cheese will more than make up for it.
Classic Macaroni and Cheese
… And for those nights when you just want the tried and trusted version, this recipe won’t let you down. Nothing fancy, nothing difficult, just the delicious basics.
