NEW ALBANY, Ohio, (July 11, 2018) — Bob Evans Farms is celebrating National Mac and Cheese Day on July 14, 2018 by partnering with one of America’s favorite celebrity couple, Nick and Vanessa Lachey, who have each created their own custom macaroni and cheese recipes.

“One of our favorite things to do as a family is make dinners together,” said Vanessa Lachey. “Mac and cheese is a staple in our household – so we were thrilled to partner with Bob Evans Farms to customize our own special recipes. We’ll be making both dishes on National Mac and Cheese Day this year – and will let our kids decide which one is their favorite!”

Vanessa’s recipe “Macaroni and Cheese Toppings Bar” features Bob Evans Macaroni and Cheese and can be personalized with a variety of delicious toppings such as bacon bits and roasted tomatoes, while Nick opted for a “Cincinnati Inspired Mac and Cheese Burger,” which is a hamburger topped with Bob Evans Macaroni and Cheese, chili and finished with shredded cheese.

“We do mac and cheese each and every day – but it’s great to see a special day dedicated to one of America’s favorite dishes,” said Chris Lambrix, SVP Retail Business Development at Bob Evans Farms. “We are proud to partner with Nick and Vanessa Lachey who took our macaroni and cheese and created fun, delicious and easy to make recipes that are unique to each of them. We invite America to try both of their recipes, then share their favorite with us.”

From July 14-16, 2018, consumers can visit to enter for a chance to win free Bob Evans Macaroni and Cheese for a year*.

“We had a lot of fun making our own recipes using Bob Evans delicious Mac and Cheese,” said Nick Lachey. “We hope everyone enjoys both of our recipes, but I’m secretly rooting for my Ohio-inspired dish to come out on top.”
