La Devozione’s A Tavola restaurant is offering an unconventional mac & cheese dish called Lollipop di Macaroni for National Macaroni Day on July 14. The Lollipop di Macaroni is a hybrid of both Italian and American cultures. The dish is inspired by Italian arancini, a circular-shaped cheese stuffed ball, and American mac and cheese.

The fried round Mac & Cheese lollipop is served with a mornay sauce made with cheese, truffle, and hazelnuts. The macaroni pasta is cooked in boiling water, drained al dente, and seasoned with besciamella sauce, yellow and white cheddar cheese, parmigiano reggiano, nutmeg, and deep-fried in seed oil. Mornay sauce on the bottom of the dish allows you to add sauce at your preference with every bite, and it’s perfect for kids and adult pasta lovers!
