Truffle Mac and Cheese

Want a quick and delicious baked mac and cheese recipe for Thanksgiving? Give this Truffle Mac and Cheese a try! We stumbled upon truffle oil and these vibrant bow tie pasta from @terramarimports.

Instead of the usual cheddar, we jazzed it up with smoked gouda and sharp white cheddar to perfectly complement the truffle oil.
