Our household is obsessed with cheese – our cheese drawer typically has at least a variety of five cheeses at any given time. And of course, our favorite thing to make is macaroni and cheese, this time with the addition of havarti cheese from Castello, bacon, and a sprinkling of cilantro for added freshness and flavor!

Castello Havarti are creamy, mild and semi-firm cheeses. They are all slightly tangy and aromatic, without a rind. The cheeses have a soft and creamy consistency that is easy to slice and develops in flavor and character as it matures.
