Incredible Truffle Baked Macaroni and Cheese

by Nellie

Here is an incredible truffle baked macaroni and cheese that you will absolutely adore! Made with high quality ingredients, you will feel like you are in a restaurant!

Many many moons ago when I was dating my now husband, we used to go to moderately expensive restaurants all over the city. Living in New York means that you have you pick at the greatest of all cuisines!

One place that we used to frequent when our jobs left us with a lot of money in our non adulting pockets was DelFrisco’s. DelFrisco’s is a high class steak house that is often filled with executives for a quick lunch during the day but way more chill for date night during the evenings.

If you are a fan of the Devil Wears Prada movie, you may remember the scene where Miranda demands a steak at the perfect temperature as well as a copy of the Harry Potter manuscript. She went to get the steak at Delfrisco’s Grille!

The service was always phenomenal and we always felt SO taken care of! I’d often get the rib eye and hubby would get the same. Before we indulged in that though we often had Truffle Baked Macaroni and Cheese as a side dish. 

Truffle Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Recently since we have been home so often, we have been recreating some restaurant favorites. I found a recipe online in the throes of Pinterest and I was SO excited! I was able to make it and it was exactly like the real thing!

This recipe is definitely a different method from the way I make my normal baked mac and cheese but it was so worth it.

Ingredients

You will need shallots, fresh chopped garlic, olive oil, heavy cream, Gruyere, parmesan cheese and rotini pasta (or any pasta with grooves will do!).
