- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded Pecorino Romani cheese
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
- 1 tablespoon ground wheat germ
In a large pot with salt, cook the macaroni following the instructions on the package.
Meanwhile, heat a pan with oil and add the cheeses, cream, flaxseeds and wheat germ.
