Pasta & Side Dishes
Everything about mac and cheese makes us want to smile! Deliciously cheesy, ultra creamy and topped with crunchy sourdough breadcrumbs, pair this easy-to-make Gruyere Mac & Cheese with our Sonoma County Chardonnay or Reserve Chardonnay. Trust us, people will be asking for more!
Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add flour and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until smooth and golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Whisk in milk little by little, and let simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Add in cream cheese, Gruyere and Dijon to sauce. Add cooked pasta and season to taste with salt and pepper.
For gremolata: in a small bowl, combine pecorino, breadcrumbs, thyme, chives, parsley and olive oil.
Plate the mac and cheese in four, oven safe bowls, and sprinkle generously with gremolata. Place bowls on a baking sheet, and broil in oven for about 30 seconds, until golden brown. Serve with your favorite FC Chardonnay!
