When it comes to mac and cheese, there are really only two ways of going. There are many passionate views on whether stove top or baked is better. I’ll happily eat either but if I am choosing, I choose stove top every time. I just think it is a little more creamy and less dry. It’s one of my absolute favorite comfort foods in the world. So I decided to give this classic a Fall inspired and slightly more sophisticated twist with this pumpkin sausage mac and cheese. It was luscious and comforting and everything mac and cheese should be.
I just scooped the pumpkin sausage mac and cheese into little ramekins and served it immediately. Well, almost immediately…my poor husband was waiting and salivating while I took picture after picture before we ate, ha! The wait was worth it though. It was so incredibly creamy and flavorful. The addition of the pumpkin beer and pumpkin puree gave a lot of dimension to the cheese sauce, while the chorizo gave the most amazing savory, spicy and salty counterpoint. You will definitely want this as a dish on your table this fall. Enjoy! xoxo
