Caprese Mac and Cheese


If you’re lucky enough to have a few tomatoes still going strong in your garden, this recipe is for you. The classic summer caprese salad of tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil gets a cool weather update: creamy macaroni and cheese. Fall, you are officially welcome.

The dish is like nostalgia and vacation stirred together. First, the gooey mac and cheese brings you back to the staple dinner you enjoyed as a kid, and second, the fresh tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella will make you feel like you’re dining at a piazza in Italy.
