    Karen in MA (formerly OC)'s Note:

    This version of a classic, combines creamy goat cheese and nutty Parmesan. The macaroni is mixed with the cheesy sauce, and then topped with a Parmesan, thyme, breadcrumb, and goat cheese mixture. Serve with a green salad and loaf of crusty bread. This dish can be made several hours ahead of time; cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Topping

    • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
    • 2 tablespoons dried breadcrumbs
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh)
    • 1/4 cup goat cheese (about 1 ounce)
    • freshly grated pepper

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil.
    2. 2
      Add the macaroni and cook about 8 to 10 minutes, or until just tender, depending on the size of the pasta. Drain.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. When the butter is melted and sizzling, stir in the flour to create a paste and cook 1 minute.
    4. 4
      Slowly add the milk, whisking to create a smooth sauce. Let cook about 5 minutes or until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
    5. 5
      Remove the pan from the heat and slowly add the grated Parmesan and the goat cheese, whisking to create a smooth sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    6. 6
      Use the olive oil to grease the bottom of a medium size gratin or baking dish, about 8 to 10 inches long.
    7. 7
      Place the drained macaroni in the dish and pour the cheese sauce on top, stirring gently to coat all the macaroni.
    8. 8
      In a small bowl, make the topping. Mix the Parmesan, breadcrumbs, thyme, and pepper. Spoon over the macaroni and top with the goat cheese.
    9. 9
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the pasta is hot.

      I used this recipe for my christmas dinner and it was a hit. Only change I made was add a little sauntered onion to butter before adding the flour.
      Great recipe...JH

      Awesome! It's got more of a grown-up flavor to it. The goat cheese (I used chevre) helps to keep it creamy, while adding excellent flavor. The topping was great, too. I think this is my new favorite mac & cheese recipe. Thanx so much!
