Mac ‘n Cheese with Cauliflower, Pancetta, and Marble Cheddar Cheese

If there’s a dish that’s as simple as it is comforting, Mac ‘n Cheese is it! And we’ve reinvented the recipe just for you with an Armstrong touch, adding cauliflower, pancetta, and our famous Marble Cheddar Cheese. A simple weekday meal, complete and tasty. Not to mention that kids love the two colours of our Marble Cheddar Cheese!

Ingredients

  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) butter
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 1 L (4 cups) 3.25% milk
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) Dijon mustard
  • 400 g (4 cups) Armstrong Marble Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 300 g (2 cups) macaroni (or cavatappi, ziti, or other short pasta)
  • ½ cauliflower, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) florets

To serve

  • 6 slices of cooked pancetta (or bacon), crumbled
