Time: 50 minutes (25 m prep, 25 m cook)

Ingredients:
(Ingredients and measurements subject to availability)

  1. 16 oz box of cavatappi noodles (macaroni if unavailable)
  2. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  3. 4 cups sharp white cheddar cheese
  4. 1 small onion, chopped
  5. 1 tablespoon truffle oil
  6. 5 cups 2% milk
  7. 1/2 cup butter
  8. 1/2 cup Italian Panko bread crumbs
  9. 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  10. Salt and pepper* to taste

*Not provided:
Salt & pepper

Equipment:
Baking dish
Dutch oven

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350°.
  2. Boil noodles in salted water until al dente. Do not overcook, they will finish cooking in the oven!
  3. Drain, do not rinse, and set aside.
  4. In a large dutch oven, add the butter, melt, then add onions and saute on medium heat for 5 minutes until translucent.
  5. Add in the flour, stir to combine with the butter mixture. Cook for 1 minute to get rid of any raw flour taste. Slowly add your milk, whisking to combine with the flour mixture as you add. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and let cook 5 minutes until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Turn off the heat, add 2 tbs of the truffle oil, and the cheese. Stir to combine everything until the cheese is melted. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking dish.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and additional 2 tbs of truffle oil.
  7. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture evenly on top of the pasta. Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown. If you want a more golden top, pop under the broiler for 5 minutes after cooking.
