Creamy Stove-Top Macaroni and Cheese

Creamy Stove-Top Macaroni and Cheese(Adapted from CL)

4 cups uncooked Cellentani pasta
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 1/4 cups soy milk
2 ounces Laughing Cow Swiss wedges, softened
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
2 ounces shredded Asiago cheese
3 ounces shredded Provolone cheese

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package directions. Continue with the recipe while you wait for it to cook - when done, drain off water.

In a large saucepan, add flour, salt, and pepper. Whisk in soy milk until combined. Cut Swiss wedges into small chunks and add it into the milk mixture. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes or until thick and the chunks of wedges have melted, be sure to stir often. Mix in mustard, Worcestershire, and garlic. Cook about 1 minute. Remove from heat and add Asiago and Provolone cheeses. Stir until cheese has melted.

In a large bowl, mix together hot pasta and cheese sauce. Makes 4-6 servings.


  1. Mmmmm. I'm going to try making this later. Thanks!

  2. Please let me know what you think!

  3. i've never made macaroni and cheese. it's just not part of an asian diet, that's all. but my atlanta-born and bred 4-yr old sees it from his friends and wonders why it's never served at home. time to make some, i guess!

    so, the question is -- you used garlic in the recipe, did that alter the overall taste? i can imagine adding worcestershire but dijon mustard? my asian tongue just cannot picture it. mental note: need to go to grocery tomorrow to get ingredients and make this gourmet-tasting mac n cheese!

  4. Purplegirl - You are missing out! It is definitely a treat. I liked the little bite of garlic, but I don't think it would harm it to leave it out.

    The mustard just enhanced the rest of the flavors in my opinion - you couldn't point it out if you didn't know it was in there. Let me know what you think!
