Black Truffle and Comté Mac And Cheese

Benjamin Vaschetti By Benjamin Vaschetti, Chef

Looking to switch things up from the mac and cheese you were making as a student? Yet this unconventional one-pot approach also happens to be one of the simplest ways to prepare mac and cheese. Starchy pasta cooking water mingles with melted cheese to create a creamy, gooey sauce that still feels light. Black Périgord truffles and Comté cheese are a natural pairing. Simply gorgeous and decadent.
