The aromatic sage enhances this dish. It pairs beautifully with the cheddar cheese, causing a fragrant aroma and warm flavor that you won’t be able to get enough of.
I’ve had cheese that was sage flavor in the past and it was awesome! So the other day I was digging in the depths of my freezer thinking what on earth do I have in here when I found the fresh sage that I froze. I said hmm I already made sage/cheddar biscuits, what else can I make??? I remembered that time I had the sage flavored cheese and thought that would be perfect! Since I knew we were having ribs for dinner, mac and cheese would go along perfect!
