  • Prep Time: 18 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6


  • 1/2 oz. dried porcini mushrooms
  • 1 (7 oz.) pkg. (2 cups) elbow macaroni
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  • 1

    Soak mushrooms in boiling water to cover; let stand until softened, about 15 minutes. Drain, chop and set aside. Meanwhile, cook macaroni according to package directions.

  • 2

    Melt 3 tablespoons butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt and cayenne pepper; cook and stir 1 minute. Add milk; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in cheese until melted. Stir in drained macaroni and reserved mushrooms.

  • 3

    Pour into a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a small bowl; add breadcrumbs and toss well. Sprinkle over macaroni mixture.

  • 4

    Bake in preheated 350°F oven 25 to 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly and crumbs are golden brown.


  • To enhance woodsy mushroom flavor even more, drizzle 1/2 tsp. white truffle oil over each serving. Make fresh breadcrumbs by pulsing torn sliced bread in blender.
