Nutritional values

This macaraoni and cheese is rich in calcium and protein. However it's also packed with fat and calories, making it more of a special occasion dish than a standard weeknight meal.

Replace the panko bread crumbs with whole wheat bread crumbs for an added dose of fiber.

Preparation steps

1.

Preheat oven to 400º F.

In a cast iron skillet, whisk together milk and flour and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, add nutmeg, and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Add goat cheese and Swiss cheeses; mix until melted, about 1 minute. Add cooked elbow macaroni and stir to combine.

In a small bowl, toss bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, peanuts, thyme, parsley, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over the top. Bake until topping is browned and cheese is bubbling, about 30-35 minutes. Serve.
