Easy Gouda Mac & Cheese

Gouda Mac

Mac , Mac N Cheese, Macaroni and Cheese, Whatever you choose to call it! Its almost everyone’s favorite. I mean who wouldn’t love the oooey goey that is mac. Aunties all over the world arguing about who has the best mac, or corn bread, or potato salad. The list goes on. Mac can be a big fuss.
I’ve catered many of pans of Mac, and like mine I imagine the world has a drawn out recipe that requires some work to get to that perfected ending, right? So Everyone asks me for my mac recipe. A couple years ago a girl I used to work with says “Jas don’t you want me to get married? give me the recipe.” lol. I never gave it.
But here I’ve created a very simple, quick, and easy yet Delicious recipe for Mac that you could create any day. Even those times you’ve just got home from a 8 hour shift but want a good home cooked meal that taste like it took hours!


  • Barilla Cellentani Pasta
  • 1lb of grated Smoked Gouda
  • Heavy Cream
  • 1 Pack of Cream Cheese
  • 1 tbsp. Mrs.Dash table seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1 Tbsp garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp. Black&White Pepper
  • 2 tbsp. Butter
  • 1/2 tbsp. Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tbsp. Italian Herbs
  • 1 tsp Garlic Paste
  • Sea Salt to taste

Takes ,
serves 5-8.


  1. Of course the first step would be to cook your pasta in salted water. I used Cellentani Pasta because I like the size of it and that it holds up to sauce and cheese well. You can use any kind that you like or feel comfortable with. Now watch this video and we’ll chat after.
Here I take you through the steps.

As you can see the Process is quick and easy. I baked mine after with some Colby Jack cheese on top. Simply put the oven on 400 for a quick crust on top. If you don’t want to bake it afterward, guess what, YOU DONT HAVE TO. Do what makes your toes wiggle and what takes you to your happy place.
