Entertaining at home is one of my favorite activities of all time, but as with all hobbies, it requires lots of thinking ahead and decision-making, from planning a prep schedule to coordinating the menu. In a new series reminiscent of our What Would You Make feature, I'll present a dish and ask you to share what you'd serve alongside it.
Here's the scenario: You've toiled over these individual-sized portions of baked shells and cheese, made with parmesan and sharp white cheddar, for a dinner party that you're hosting. What would you serve to complement the dish? To see what I'd make, read more.
I'd serve the mac and cheese to my guests as part of a Southern-inspired menu. Since this dish is rich and filling, I'd keep the rest of the menu relatively light, serving the shells alongside chili-rubbed pork chops, stewed collard greens, and a seasonally appropriate strawberry-rhubarb crisp. I'd pour a versatile rosé like Banfi Rosa Regale for my guests to enjoy alongside the meal.
