This is a fun winter twist on mac & cheese. Whole-grain penne pasta are tossed with creamy Gruyère cheese sauce, roasted sweet celery root, and tart Granny Smith apples. It's baked with Parmesan-parsley bread crumbs on top for a bit of golden, buttery crunch.

I hate celery, but tried this anyway because I know it's the root. Still had the flavor of course, but this combo was excellent! Very hearty-satisfying.

Not as advertised. They must have run out of macaroni because mine was mostly spaghetti with some penne mixed in. Needless to say, not really a Mac and cheese.
5 Stars
The whole family enjoyed this. Our picky veggie haters didn't notice the celery root.

Okay. Good flavor but drowning in sauce. Breadcrumbs a nice touch but a little on the salty side for me.

Very bland and the pasta was overlooked and gummy. Will not order again.

I wasn't crazy about the combination of celeriac with mac 'n cheese, but this was a decent vegetarian side dish, and I like that it had whole grain pasta.

Light taste. Not too heavy.

There were some odd flavor choices; I didn't enjoy the dish. It didn't, in the end, taste like Mac & Cheese. I'm sure there are others who will absolutely love the dish, however.

Didn't reheat well, some ingredients seemed under or overdone. the flavors didn't go together as well as i'd imagined

If you like whole grain pasta, then you will like this dish. Unfortunately, it's just not my cup of tea.

Mac and cheese was healthy, flavorful, and perfectly cooked. I took it out of the aluminum dish and put it in the microwave for 1.5 minutes and it was amazing. Loved it...will definitely order it again...

I was a fan of the pasta and sauce, although the celery root wasn't cooked well enough and honestly just didn't go with the dish. I also didn't like that it came in a metal tin, not allowing for it to be easily microwaved.
