This is an extravagant version of mac and cheese, but the indulgence is well worth it!

Top Review by Jess A.

This is a great base recipe! I had a lot of brie I needed to use up and wasn't really sure where to start with a brie mac. I ended up only having almond milk in the fridge so I used that in place of the milks. Sautéed some garlic and onion for the sauce and made homemade bread crumbs with tarragon. Last alteration I used shell noodles. I'm very pleased with how it all turned out!
