Craving a rich, cheesy, baked pasta? Us, too. Because sometimes the comfort of cheese-enveloped carbs transfers beyond the immediate tangible satisfaction to something more deeply sustaining.
Italian comfort food of the most indulgent sort. Gotta love it.

This luxe mac and cheese comes in diminutive dishes at hoity-toity Balthazar, though it creates no less comfort scooped straight from a plain old baking dish sitting in the center of the table.
