kale mac
"When I was growing up in the middle of America, I loved and lived on mac and cheese. I mean, let’s be honest, it is just SO good! However, most mac and cheese isn’t exactly going to give you what you need nutritionally and it depletes the energy supply. So, for my kids’ sake, I had to find a mac and cheese that tasted as good (if not better) AND filled them with all things good. This recipe takes 20 minutes, but you do need to do a little planning and place the cashews in a bowl of water the night before. Then you’re ready to go when you come home the next evening."- Julie Montagu, The Flexi Foodie.Recipe excerpted with permission from cookbook Super Foods Super Fast: 100 Energizing Recipes To Make in 20 Minutes Or Less by Julie Montagu. Click here to purchase your own copy.

Maine Lobster Mac and Cheese
This is a decadent side dish for a holiday feast, thanks to mascarpone and goat cheeses, black truffles, and butter-sautéed Maine lobster. The original directions call for it being plated, it also works to prep it in advance and keep it covered in a warm oven. For added crunch, top it with panko flakes and melted butter, and set it under the broiler for a few minutes. Serve it with a rich white Burgundy. Recipe courtesy of chef Margaret McLellen.

We love any way to spice up a mac and cheese, and this recipe was one of our favorites. Sun-dried tomatoes, broccoli florets, and a cheesy sauce take the heat with a dash of cayenne, resulting in a savory and gooey mac and cheese that has a hint of spice in it.

I call this the ultimate because of the sauce — it's perfectly smooth and creamy, just the way I like it. If you prefer a less smooth cheese or a different flavor profile, feel free to substitute your favorite cheeses in. Just remember what Laura Werlin says when it comes to cheese: an infinite number of cheeses can go into your mac and cheese, but what matters is the results you're looking for. Choose the cheeses that will give you those results.
