We know Easter will be a little different this year, but that won't keep us from doing what we do best - celebrating with a table full of our favorite comfort foods. Of course not to exclude the most satisfying comfort food of all - Mac and Cheese! This year we're taking it to the next level
with the addition of @hatfieldmeats sweet Italian sausage, and whoa - this
gets us excited! We teamed up with @hatfieldmeats and @thefeedfeed to bring
you a ridiculously creamy recipe, so rich and flavorful with the sausage -
the whole family is going to love it. And the best part of all? Hatfield is
committed to sustaining American family farms. No hormones or steroids are
ever added, and the animals are raised without growth promotants. We can't
wait for you to try this one!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
1 lb medium shells, cooked al dente
1 lb Hatfield Sweet Italian Sausage
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
4 Tbsp flour
4 cups whole milk
16 oz fontina, shredded
8 oz sharp provolone, shredded
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, add Hatfield Sweet Italian Sausage to a large pan and cook over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes.
Prepare the sauce by melting butter over med-low in a large saucepan. Whisk in flour and cook for 2-3 minutes. Slowly add milk while whisking continuously until the mixture is completely smooth. Bring milk mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally until the sauce begins to thicken (careful not to boil sauce), about 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in the cheeses, one handful at a time. Whisk in the grated parmesan, and season with kosher salt and pepper.
Stir in the cooked Hatfield Sweet Italian Sausage, sprinkle with more grated parmesan, and serve immediately.
