"Everyone loves mac and cheese," Top Chef Master and New York chef Marcus Samuelsson tells KitchenDaily. We couldn't agree more, and his take might be the best we've seen yet — a sumptuous blend between American macaroni and the classic Italian favorite, pasta carbonara.
Marcus demonstrates that it's all about building flavors by crisping smoky bacon, blending in sharp parmigiano-reggiano, and finishing with oregano's lesser-used cousin, marjoram. This one-pot meal isn't light on the butter, cream, or cheese, but its slow-cooked flavor and creamy texture will leave you hungry for more. Head over to KitchenDaily for the demo and recipe.
