In our house, macaroni and cheese is a staple, especially my homemade mac-n-cheese. We have had truffle mac-n-cheese a few times at restaurants and finally decided to recreate it at home. It was an instant hit!


1/2 lb small shell pasta

1/4 cup + 2 tbsp butter, separated

1/4 flour

2 cups milk

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 cup gruyere cheese, shredded

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1 cup gouda cheese, shredded

1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs

1 tsp White Truffle infused Olive Oil


  • Cook pasta as directed, until al dente. Drain. Place into a large mixing bowl.
  • Layer shredded cheese on top of hot pasta inside large mixing bowl.
  • In a large skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter. Add flour and whisk until lightly browned with a nutty aroma.
  • Stir in salt and pepper. Add milk, whisking until a thicker consistency. Add truffle oil. Pour over pasta/cheese mixture.
  • Stir contents of entire bowl until combined.
  • Preheat oven to 325* Fahrenheit.
  • In a small skillet, melt 2 tbsp butter. Once melted, add Panko bread crumbs and stir until slightly browned.
  • Transfer pasta mixture to a medium baking dish. Spread evenly in dish. Top with toasted Panko.
