Mac n Cheese was a staple in our house when I was a kid, but I was an adult before I ever tasted homemade Mac n Cheese.
That moment began a love affair that will last a lifetime.
In the beginning, I made a simple recipe that ultimately evolved into what my boys now call “Mom’s World Famous.” It is still one of my most requested dishes from the boys for special occasions.
Over time, my palate has evolved, and I prefer getting a bit more adventurous in the kitchen. Though my traditional Mac n Cheese is great comfort food, I much prefer today’s Ultimate Veggie Mac n Cheese.
Made with gluten free penne, a fantastic cheese blend, fresh spring vegetables and a hint of cayenne, this is Mac n Cheese all grown up. The magic comes in from the Roth Ultimate Mac & Cheese, which is a blend of Grand Cru® (a Roth original cheese), Havarti and Sharp Cheddar. This chef-created blend gives the dish a flavor you won’t soon forget. Sharp, silky and oh so creamy!
Roth occasionally has coupons on their site. I found one for $1.00 of Ultimate’s recently, so check it out!
Right now Roth is giving away a $100 Visa gift card plus one of each Ultimates (3) and a Roth t-shirt and hat. Valued around $150.
