This time of the year I’m always on the lookout for a good summer potluck dish. My newest go-to is this deliciously creamy goat cheese mac and cheese with peas.
With so many cookouts, picnics, and gatherings in the warm months, it is nice to have a few tasty dishes up my sleeve. As a very type A person, having a small portfolio of go-to easy-to-share dishes helps take the stress away from trying to find a potluck dish to bring in these situations, and helps me focus on seeing friends, rather than worrying about what food to bring.
One of my criteria for these sharable dishes is that they appeal to a lot of people. I always want to make sure I am contributing well to the group meal, and bringing something that appeals to many people, perhaps with different tastes, not just a dish that only a few people will like. Mac and cheese is always a great go-to in the colder months (I mean, who doesn’t like mac and cheese?!), but goat cheese gives the classic comfort dish a fresh update for the summer.
Goat cheese mac and cheese is amazingly creamy and cheesy, with a slight tang that is perfect for the warm summer months. The fresh summer peas pop against the pale cheesy noodles and add a little color to this delicious shareable dish. With an unexpected twist on the classic mac n’ cheese that everyone loves, goat cheese mac and cheese with peas is a total crowd-pleaser, perfect for your summer get-togethers.
