black truffle macaroni cheese recipe

Preparation Time: 5 minutes / Cooking Time: 20 minutes/ Serves: 4 generous portions


  • 5g black truffle, shaved
  • 375g macaroni
  • 70g grated Monterrey Jack cheese (or Gouda)
  • 70g grated cheddar cheese
  • 30g Queso Quesadilla cheese (or Mozzarella)
  • 30g Asadero cheese (or Provolone)
  • 45g unsalted butter
  • 60g plain flour
  • 450ml full cream milk
  • salt & pepper for seasoning


  1. Cook the macaroni as per the instructions on the box.
  2. Remove the pasta from the heat, strain and place aside.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat.
  4. Add the flour and stir to combine into a ball, cook for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add 100ml of milk to the saucepan and stir constantly until all the milk is incorporated.
  6. Repeat step 5 until all the milk has been added.
  7. Add the four cheeses to the saucepan and continuously stir until all the cheese has melted.
  8. Once melted, add the macaroni, 3g of black truffle, salt and pepper to the cheese sauce and mix well.
  9. Serve into 4 bowls and top with thin shavings of the remaining truffle.


If you add a pinch of salt and a dash of oil to the pasta while it is boiling it will stop the pasta sticking together.

If you don’t have a truffle shaver use a vegetable peeler. It will create fine slithers of beautiful truffle just like the actual device.
