  1. Well that looks and sounds beyond yummy Ann! I love the addition of white wine. I know that pairs wonderfully with the fresh basil! Yum!!

    Btw, even when I click on “notify me for comments” after each comment. I never get notified if you respond… 🙁

  2. I just love new Italian recipes and this one sounds great! It has been husband approved so I pinned it! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Oh my goodness-YUM!!! I’m definitely pinning your recipe! I’ve always struggled with homemade macaroni and cheese-but I can’t wait to try your Italian style! Thank you for sharing at The Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

  4. This looks and sounds SO good. LOVE Italian flavors but never had them in a mac & cheese!

  5. Perfect comfort food for this time of year! Looks delicious!

  6. I love love love this recipe! I can’t wait to try it. This is so my kind of comfort food! Pinned 🙂

  7. I couldn’t find the wine. Would this taste fine without it any ways?

  8. Karen H. says:

    This sounds so yummy. I am going to also add some sweet italian sausage. I can’s wait to try it.

  9. Sounds delicious! Is this freezer friendly?

  10. What kind of white wine? I’m not experienced with using wine with cooking. Any information would be great. Thanks!

    • You can actually buy cooking wine if you don’t have anything at home to use, Jodi. Another good choice is cheap. Stay away from a really sweet wine (like a moscato or riesling). Hubby prefers a Chardonnay which can be buttery, oak-y or steel drum.

  11. This recipe is a keeper! My husband thought it tasted like Alfredo Mac and Cheese. I’m very glad I used brown rice elbow noodles so I could enjoy it, too. Other than that, no substitutions were made. Next time, my family requested that we skip the oven, and enjoy from the stove-top (personal preference). Thank you so much for this delicious recipe!

  12. tammyjewell124 says:

    Before adding the cheeses do you let the white sauce thicken first?

  13. I have never heard of a 13 X 9 inch pan did you mean 9 X 13 inch , and do I cover with foil?

  14. This was so good! I made it for dinner tonight and loved it. I only added a splash of wine but I loved all the cheese and seasonings. I may skip the oven next time but I can’t wait to make this again. Thanks for the recipe!
