Ingredients

Blue Cheese Mac and Cheese Recipe

  • 2 cups uncooked macaroni pasta
  • 1 tbsp dried chives
  • 1 tbsp cracked pepper
  • 1 tbsp onion flakes

Blue Cheese Sauce

  • 160 grams blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup greek yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese NOTE 2
  • 1 tbsp onion flakes
  • 1/2 cup left over pasta water

Instructions

Blue Cheese Mac and Cheese Recipe

  • Bring a medium sized 3/4 water filled dutch oven to the boil, add a splash of olive oil and cook macaroni till al dente (approx 8 mins). NOTE 1
  • In a heat proof jug add blue cheese, cheddar cheese and greek yoghurt.
  • When pasta is cooked, remove from heat, drain keeping the water and add pasta back to dutch oven.
  • Sitr 1/2 cup of pasta water into cheese sauce and stir to combine as cheeses melt
  • Pour cheese sauce over cooked macaroni, add onion flakes and stir to combine. Keep at a low heat until ready to serve.
  • Top with dried chives, cracked pepper and onion flakes.

Notes

  • Note 1: I don't use salt to cook pasta. I use a little olive oil. I would not recommend adding salt as the blue cheese is salty enough. A saucepan is fine to cook this recipe, I was excited to get my 1st dutch oven, so I tested it out! 
  • Note 2: To the shock horror of my American and Canadian friends, you can't really buy cheddar cheese in Australia. I used mozzarella, but recommend cheddar for those who can get it. For Aussies, mozzarella or regular grated (light) will do fine.
