“My sister and I wanted to try a new twist on macaroni and cheese but could not find exactly what we were looking for, so we came up with our own version. It features sharp blue cheese, mellow onion and a creamy white sauce. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as we did!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil pasta according to package directions until al dente. Drain, reserving 6 tablespoons of the water and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan and saute onion in it until lightly browned.
  3. Add cream, cream cheese and blue cheese. Stir until cheese has melted.
  4. Add the 6 tablespoons of reserved pasta water.
  5. Season with nutmeg, sage, pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, and chili powder. You may adjust seasonings to taste.
  6. Mix together pasta and sauce and pour into a casserole dish (mine was about 9X13 inches).
  7. Sprinkle with gouda and parmesan cheese.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius/350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and nicely browned.
  9. Enjoy!
