Cream, cheese, pasta — there's not much to dislike when it comes to classic macaroni and cheese. But to add even more flavor and an extra layer of heft, try stirring in some fresh add-ins to the mixture the next time you make it. While Ina Garten layers her casserole with sliced tomatoes and Rachael Ray showcases golden butternut squash, Food Network Magazine opts for plenty of mushrooms for hearty, earthy results.

Easy to make and full of the warming comfort you crave in macaroni and cheese, this recipe for Mini Mac and 'Shrooms features a next-level cheese sauce that's made with two kinds of bold cheeses: Taleggio (or Brie, if you prefer that) and pecorino. Once the buttery, creamy sauce is smooth, round out the dish with the pasta and a mix of mushrooms, including meaty creminis. For an added layer of texture, Food Network Magazine finishes each bowl of mac with buttery breadcrumbs for subtle crunch.
