  • Summary

    My mother passed down her macaroni and cheese recipe to me about 20 years ago. I have made my own tweaks since then to create what is now known as my Ultimate Five-Cheese Macaroni and Cheese. Made with a blend of sharp cheddar, Monterey Jack, mozzarella, Pecorino Romano, and Parmesan cheeses, this dish has become a favorite of every single person who has tasted it. Yes, this recipe is a little labor intensive, but it is well worth it! I cooked this dish in a Lodge 3-quart enameled cast iron Dutch oven. The following directions also include a temperature variation for when cooking it in glass, which I often do.

    Ingredients

    • 1 or 2 lbs. Mueller’s Elbow Macaroni
    • 1 lb. Sharp cheddar cheese
    • 1 lb. Mozzarella cheese
