Pesto Mac and Cheese

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

My family loves pesto. It is such a great ingredient that can add a nice amount of flavor. My family also loves mac and cheese. So, I thought why not combine the to together. This pesto mac and cheese would be excellent on it’s own but the pesto gives it a nice fresh punch.

This is also made on the stove top, so it’s another great meal for summer. It also is a great side dish too.

  • 8 oz of tube pasta
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • cup milk
  • 6 oz. grated cheese – you can change up your mix but I did 3 oz. mozzarella, 2 oz. cheddar, 1 oz. Parmesan
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • cup pesto


  • Cooking the pasta according to the package directions.
  • While its cooks, whisk together the egg and milk in a bowl.
  • When the pasta is cooked, drain and return to the pot over medium heat. Stir in the butter until melted.
  • Then mix in the egg/milk mixture, stirring quickly so the egg does not scramble.
  • Now stir in the cheese, about an ounce at a time, so the cheese melts nice and smooth. When it has totally melted, stir in the salt, pepper, and pesto. Serves 4 as a main dish.
