1 loaf ciabatta or Italian bread
½ cup extra virgin olive oil

Baked Macaroni & Cheese with White Truffles and Mushrooms

INGREDIENTS (makes 5-6 servings)

1 pound elbow macaroni
4 cups milk
1 can Urbani White Truffles and Mushrooms
2 cups shredded Fontana cheese
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
½ cup grated Parmigianino Reggiano cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

PREPARATION

Preheat the oven to 375 ºF and grease a 13x9x2 baking dish. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the pasta. Cook for approximately 4-5 minutes, until “al dente”. Drain and set aside. In a small saucepan warm the milk over low heat. Melt butter in a medium saucepan and then add flour all at once, whisking constantly for 1 minute.

Whisking constantly, slowly pour the warm milk into the butter/flour mixture. Continue to whisk for approximately 2-3 minutes, until the sauce is slightly thickened. Add shredded cheeses into the pot and stir until melted. Add 1 can of the White Truffles & Mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper.

Add the pasta and parsley into the cheese sauce and stir until well combined. Pour the pasta into a greased baking dish, sprinkle with panko bread crumbs and grated parmesan cheese and bake for approximately 30-35 minutes, until golden brown.
