Meet a macaroni made for the grown up’s table! Slightly sophisticated and fully delicious, Muenster Mac and Cheese is creamy, savory and baked to perfection.


  • 1 and ½ cups elbow macaroni pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups shredded muenster cheese, divided


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions to al dente.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  3. Meanwhile, make the cheese sauce by melting the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, whisk in the flour and salt and continue to whisk until thickened. Slowly whisk in the milk and continue to whisk often until starting to thicken again.
  4. Turn the heat to low and stir in 1 and ½ cups of the shredded muenster cheese until melted. Remove from heat.
  5. Once the pasta is cooked and drained, stir it into the cheese sauce.
  6. Butter an 8-inch baking dish and then pour the macaroni and cheese mixture into the baking dish. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup shredded muenster cheese.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese on top is bubbly and starting to brown in spots.
