Truffle Macaroni and Cheese is comfort food like no other! It’ll make your day deliciously, cheesy, and comfy-cozy!
Homemade Macaroni and Cheese has got to be in my top five comfort foods, then add a few drops of Armoretti’s All Natural Black Truffle Oil into the mix and it’s really going to rock-your-world! Oh my.
I’ve loved Mac and Cheese forever and while I’ve out grown my love of the boxed varieties- I’ll take a bowl of homemade any day of the week!
Our Truffle Macaroni and Cheese has a lovely crisp panko topping to finish it off, which adds a delightful crunchy texture to the creamy cheesiness hiding beneath.
Have you heard of Amoretti? They have a huge variety of All Natural I’ve been trying a few in my kitchen over the past couple of weeks and let me tell y’all… they are completely delightful! Amoretti has an amazing variety of high quality products for you to discover and enjoy!
