Truffled Mac and Cheese with Broccoli and Goat Cheese

Serves 4-6 | Prep: 5 minutes | Cook: 25 minutes


2 boxes Horizon Organic Organic Mac

1 small head brocolli, cut into bite sized pieces

 5 tablespoons butter, divided

1 leek, cleaned and finely sliced

1/2 cup reduced fat milk

4 oz crumbled goat cheese, divided

2 drops truffle oil

kosher salt, to taste

freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 cup panko bread crumbs

shaved truffles (optional)


Preheat the broiler.

In a large pot, bring 6 cups water to a boil. Season water with salt, then cook both the pasta and broccoli for about 8 minutes, or until the pasta is cooked al dente and the broccoli is fork tender. 

Meanwhile, in a medium, oven proof pot, melt 4 tablespoons butter over medium low heat and cook the leeks until wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir in the milk, and cheese from Horizon Organic Organic Mac packet and mix until smooth. Drain the cooked pasta and broccoli, and add to the cheese mixture, along with 3 oz goat cheese and truffle oil, stirring well until the pasta is coated with the cheese mixture. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary. Remove from heat. Top with panko bread crumbs. Melt remaining tablespoon butter and drizzle over the breadcrumbs. Scatter the remaining 1 oz goat cheese on top of the breadcrumb topping.

Place under the broiler for about 5 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned. If you wish, serve with thin shavings of truffles.
