Macaroni and cheese is a dish that Canadians have been enjoying for generations! We created our own version with two varieties of OKA cheese and a touch of Dijon. For a little something extra that makes all the difference, don't forget that OKA cheese is perfect for gratin!

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the milk, water and salt to a boil.
  2. Add the pasta, stir with a wooden spoon and cook for 9 to 10 minutes, partially covered (be careful that it doesn’t boil over).
  3. Once the pasta is al dente, reduce the heat to medium-low and keep the liquid in the saucepan (do not drain). Add in the Dijon mustard and cheeses, stirring until the cheese is fully melted and the pasta is tender. Remove from heat and season to taste. Serve immediately.
