Goat Cheese Mac & Cheese
I make a mean delicious gourmet Macaroni and cheese. It is easy with Old Windmill Dairy cheese from Estancia, New Mexico. You can find their awesome cheeses at the Santa Fe Farmers market (Railyard), Albuqeruqe Growers Market and Railyard Market.
1. 1 lb of cooked macaroni
2 5oz tubs of any goat cheese from Old Windmill Dairy. I like using their Country Thyme (Sage, Time and Garlic Goat Cheese or Sundried Tomatoe or Pesto and Pine Nuts).
2 5oz tubs of their cream cheese/fromage. I recommend either Fromage Blanc with herbs (Rosemary and Garlic) or Heart of Chile which has Artichoke hearts and Green Chile.
1/2 of lb of graded cheese. Old Windmill Dairy makes a really nice goat cheddar called McIntosh. The other option to consider is either their Sandia Sunrise Goat Milk Smoked Gouda or their Smoked Cows Milk gouda.
1/3 cup of milk
4 tablespoons of butter. Old Windmill Dairy has awesome butter too.
Mix up the cream cheese or chevre into the warm cooked pasta. Even out in a 9 x 10′ baking dish. Poor the milk evenly over the top. Place dolups of butter over the tub. Cover with your choice of graded cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until golden bubbly brown. Then serve.
