How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare an 8x8 casserole with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pasta

  • Heat milk and water in a pot over high heat until it just begins to boil - do not scald. Add pasta and stir well. Turn temperature to medium. Cook for about 7-8 minutes, stirring often until most of liquid is absorbed. Meanwhile work on cheese sauce.
  • Cheese Sauce

  • Heat pot over medium heat. Add butter and allow to melt. Whisk in flour, one tbsp at a time working out all lumps until smooth. Add milk 1/2 cup at a time and whisk well. Add seasonings. Next add cheeses and remove from heat. Add cooked pasta and mix until well incorporated. Pour mixture into casserole dish.
  • Topping

  • Mix bread crumbs with seasonings. Sprinkle evenly on to top of macaroni. Drizzle melted butter over top as evenly as possible, using a teaspoon. Place in oven and bake for 20-30 minutes until cheese is bubbling and top just begins to brown. Enjoy!

    Dumb question here, but by "port wine cheddar," do you mean the container of the spreadable kind that Wispride or HelluvaGood make? Or the vacuum-sealed block?

    Must try, will try, need to try! Seriously, I've been thinking about port wine for mac n cheese for many years but didn't know how I should apply it until now. Genius!

    That is a completely decadent Mac N' Cheese. Seeing a recipe like this makes you wonder how anyone can stomach that stuff out of a box made with yellow powder.

    Cheers to you!

    I had no idea there was such a kind of cheese (Port wine cheddar cheese) How interesting! I am from the country of port wine and I have never seen it in markets around here :( Can you taste the port wine in it?
