Make Ahead Mac And Cheese. New Music From High Up.

Make Ahead Mac And Cheese
‘Make ahead’ and ‘mac and cheese’ are two of my favorite things. Put them together and you have this ultra traditional mac and cheese that can be assembled up to 4 days before baking. A layer of Muenster cheese on top gives the dish an extra creamy touch and some appealing lines of color.

Make Ahead Mac And Cheese


¾ pound cavatappi pasta
2 tablespoons butter
¼ cup flour
4 cups whole milk
8 ounces shredded Cheddar-Jack cheese
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon black pepper
5 slices Muenster cheese (about 4 ounces)


1. Cook the pasta according to package directions subtracting 1 minute. Drain.

2. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Slowly stir in the milk. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the Cheddar-Jack, mustard, and pepper. Stir until cheeses are melted. Stir in the pasta.

3. Transfer pasta mixture to a 13 x 9-inch baking dish and cover with the Muenster. Cool completely. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to bake, up to 4 days.

4. To cook, bring casserole to room temperature. Bake at 400°F until golden and warmed through, 25 to 35 minutes.
