Baked Gruyere and Herb Macaroni

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"A light and refreshing version of mac 'n cheese. It still has a delightful cheesy flavor, but more on the milder side in order to allow all the flavors in this dish come together as one."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and place in an 8-inch casserole dish.
  3. Combine tarragon, salt, white pepper, rosemary, chives, sage, and thyme in a small bowl. Mix well. Combine cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, and Gruyere cheese in another bowl; add the herb mixture and stir. Pour over the macaroni and stir to coat evenly.
  4. Combine shallot, bread crumbs, and butter in another dish; sprinkle mixture over the macaroni.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until top is lightly golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
