When it comes to family favorites, Mac and Cheese tops the list. There’s something special about yummy pasta smothered in a creamy cheese sauce. But there’s something even more special about showing your state pride when making one of the family’s favorite dishes. This homemade Cheesy Texas Mac and Cheese is creamy, it’s cheesy, and it’s delicious!
Texans are a proud bunch. We love our state and we like to show it. We love everything Texas-themed and Skinner® Texas Shaped pasta is no different! It’s so much fun and the kids get a kick out of the Texas-shaped pasta. Whether you’re entertaining some friends or just cooking for your family, it’s the PERFECT base for all your pasta dishes.
Pasta makes me smile. It fill my family’s bellies with goodness, it reminds me of home, it takes me back to places I’ve been, and it takes me to new places I want to go. Pasta is friendly and makes people smile. Just like the people of my great state.

When I make this Cheesy Texas Mac and Cheese, it’s a fight with the kiddos to see who can hurry up and get a second helping before it’s all gone. It’s that good, y’all, especially if you LOVE a CREAMY and CHEESY Mac and Cheese.
I like using Skinner pasta in my pasta dishes because it tastes great and it is easy to cook with. It has also earned Non-GMO Project Verification on its most popular pasta products. With Skinner pasta being friendly on the wallet, it’s no surprise it is the #1 selling pasta in Texas. What can I say, Texans love Skinner!
