This whole-wheat three-cheese macaroni is a foolproof weeknight dinner. It requires two pots, but the velvety, cheesy flavor makes it all worth while.
It’s Monday–again [This is being posted on Wednesday, but I wrote it on a Monday… Does that make sense??]. How does the weekend always fly by in the blink of an eye? Monday’s at our house are for cleaning up after carefree weekends. Sometimes that means picking up toys and popcorn bowls, and other times it means washing wine glasses and throwing away beer cans. Nevertheless, Monday’s are not my favorite day of the week.
That’s why I try to keep Monday dinners on the quick and painless. Sydnee loves Macaroni and Cheese, especially the kind that’s shaped like Nemo and Dory. She calls it ‘cheesy nood-os’, aka cheesy noodles. For some time, I caved to her pleads and made the boxed stuff with the powder cheese, and it sufficed. But it was time to step my Suzie Homemaker game up.
That’s when this delectable dinner dish was born. Although, I can’t fully take credit for it because my mom used to make a mean homemade mac-n-cheese, and I studied her ways. But, this three-cheese macaroni is mine. I’m a lover of all cheeses, but there is a special place in my heart for mozzarella and provolone. When I think of these softer white cheeses I think of Italian restaurants, and Bruschetta melts. Yum!
The provolone adds a subtle smoky flavor to this three-cheese macaroni, while the mozzarella makes it creamy. I added one more cheese to the recipe– because cheese. It makes my heart beat like a 14-year-old girl’s at her first school dance. I ended up using a medium cheddar, and it turned out divine.
This recipe is a huge winner at our house and continues to be a part of our dinner schedule. I hope you and your family enjoy it. Also be sure to check out my other favorite pasta dish: Creamy Cheesy Garlic Shrimp Pasta.
