Organic Shells and White Cheddar
October 6, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no law that states macaroni & cheese must be vibrant orange. In fact, Trader Joe's Organic Shells and White Cheddar proves that color is pretty much irrelevant when it comes to flavor. We use organic pasta and organic white cheddar cheese made with milk from cows not treated with rBST. We don't use any artificial flavors, synthetic colors or preservatives.
There's never a bad time for quick & easy meals, and this mac & cheese is one of the quickest and easiest. Follow the directions on the box and in just a few minutes you'll have a meal on the table. For an even creamier sauce, try this: drain the pasta and leave it in the colander. While it's draining, melt butter in the (empty) pasta pot, then add milk and cheese sauce powder. With a wire whisk, stir briskly over medium heat until the sauce begins to thicken. Then, and only then, add the pasta back in and stir. Trust us here—this will be the very best version of boxed mac & cheese you've ever tasted. And it will only take an extra minute or so. Well worth the minimal effort.
We're selling Trader Joe's Organic Shells and White Cheddar in a six ounce box for $1.49, a super price for a super quick meal. You'll find it in our grocery aisle, in the pasta section.
