A very cheesy dish - feel free to cut back on the cheese to your preference. adapted from southernliving.com


Step 1. 

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Step 2. 

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place tomato slices on a wire rack on a baking sheet. Brush on olive oil, and sprinkle with Tuscan seasoning, pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Bake in preheated oven until slightly charred, about 18 to 20 minutes.

Step 3. 

Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium until melted, about 1 minute. Whisk in flour, and cook, whisking constantly until the mixture takes on a slightly nutty color and smell, about 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in dry mustard. Slowly whisk in milk, whisking constantly, and continue to cook until slightly thickened about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool slightly for about 3 minutes. Slowly whisk in Monterey Jack, Cheddar, fontina, and salt; whisk constantly to combine and melt cheeses, about 2 minutes. Stir in pasta.

Step 4. 

Spoon pasta mixture into a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch (2-quart) baking dish, and top with tomato slices. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 450°F until bubbly and tomatoes are charred and aromatic, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.

  1. Delicious comfort food!

    This “adult” mac n cheese was so tasty! It was a great weekend meal at our house. I’m thinking next time it would be delicious with grilled chicken next time too.
