Dessert Mac 'n' Cheese

Yield: Servings: 6 - 8


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 4 cloves, whole
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • ½ C Sugar
  • ¼ C Cinnamon
  • 1 T Vanilla
  • 1 lb. any pasta
  • ½ stick butter
  • 4 T flour
  • 1 C Mascarpone Cheese Or Cream Cheese


1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Combine cream, milk, spices, sugar, and vanilla in a small saucepan, and heat on low to infuse flavors, about 10 minutes.

3. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta for 2 minutes less than recommended cooking time. Strain, and run cold water through it to stop cooking.

4. In a medium saucepan, combine butter and flour and cook to create a roux. Once roux comes together, keep cooking until butter starts to brown and is fragrant.

5. When roux is done, add milk mixture in 2 ladle batches at a time through a strainer while whisking. Continue adding, cooking and whisking until your sauce won't thicken anymore.

6. Turn heat off and stir in mascarpone. Add pasta and stir to combine.

7. Transfer mixture to a 9x13 baking dish, sprinkle top liberally with cinnamon and sugar and bake* for 15-20 minutes, until bubbling.

8. Serve with fresh berry compote, whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream.

9. *Note: Mac and cheese can be kept for up to 3 days in the fridge before baking.
