Firefly Farms Seal
Herby Harissa Mac-n-Cheese


  • 8 oz orecchiette or seashell pasta
  • 2 heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 4 oz Firefly Farms Herby Harissa Goat Cheese
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • red pepper flakes (optional)
  • fresh basil for garnish (optional)


  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, salt well, and cook the pasta. Drain and set aside, tossing with olive oil to keep from sticking. Meanwhile, mince the garlic cloves and dice the tomatoes, setting both aside. In a deep skillet, over medium heat, sauté the garlic in the olive oil and butter. When golden brown, add the herby harissa goat cheese, and after about another thirty seconds (long enough for the cheese to soften and begin melting) add the pasta. Finally, add the diced tomato and mix well, sprinkling with salt and pepper to taste, and red pepper flakes if desired. Garnish with fresh basil and serve immediately.
  2. For an extra cheesy variant, grate a little bit of our Carpenter’s Wheel or Cave Dweller over the top.
