Mac and Cheese is one of those creamy comfort foods that many enjoy, like today’s Italian Mac and Cheese recipe. It’s also a dish kids that many kids have been known to live on in their early years of childhood. I know that all 3 of my kids did along with the ever popular chicken nuggets.
Tender pasta coated in a rich creamy sauce is simple and satisfying meal. This recipe gives that standard recipe a minor Italian twist by changing up the cheese used and adding in some Italian seasoning.
To make this version more fun, you make it with penne pasta instead of the traditional elbow shaped pasta. However, you can always use any shaped pasta for this dish. A simple white sauce is made to coat the pasta in. However, no cheddar cheese is use here. Instead there are three cheeses used including mozzarella, provolone, and Parmesan. It’s a winning trio of cheeses. This dish is fairly simple to make but is a tasty change from the standard mac and cheese.
