Baked Mac n Cheese


This rich and silky baked mac n cheese is so easy to make, great for a dinner night with friends and family. It is the perfect combo of garlic, milk and cheesy goodness.

The hero ingredient of our baked mac n cheese is the Agnesi Durum Wheat Semolina Pasta kindly provided to us by one of our partners MHA. Agnesi has nearly 200 years of experience in making pasta, providing the perfect Italian selected quality pasta for this recipe.
