On the Menu Recipe: La Jolla Strip Club’s White Truffle Mac and Cheese

Ingredients

•            1/2 cup butter

•            1/2 cup chopped red onion

•            1/2 cup chopped garlic

•            1/2 cup all-purpose flour

•            2 cups whole milk

•            1 1/2 cups cooked cavatappi pasta

•            1/2 cup chopped fresh herbs (equal parts rosemary, thyme and basil)

•            1/4 cup infused white truffle oil

•            1/2 cup grated Parmesan

•            1/4 cup Japanese bread crumbs (panko)

•            Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions: Preheat the broiler. Add butter to a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the onions and garlic until they turn slightly brown. Add the flour and whisk together for 3 minutes to make a blonde roux. Whisk in the milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly to prevent the roux from burning. Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until the roux has dissolved completely and you can no longer taste the flour. Add the pasta and stir until hot. Add the fresh herbs, the truffle oil, and half of the Parmesan and stir until dissolved. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Put all ingredients into an ovenproof dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese and breadcrumbs on top evenly. Place under a broiler until top becomes golden brown. Yield: 4 servings
