Panera made its new broccoli cheddar mac and cheese recipe by combining two cheddar cheese sauces and simmering them with seasoned broccoli florets and julienned carrots.

“I’m obsessed with the flavor combination in our new broccoli cheddar mac and cheese,” Panera head chef Claes Petersson said in a written statement, calling the dish “insanely craveable and irresistible.”

The dish is available at Panera locations across the U.S., starting at $5.79 or as part of a “You Pick 2” selection. The chain has more than 2,100 locations in 48 states and Ontario, Canada.

Panera said it would also make its broccoli cheddar mac and cheese available in grocery store refrigerated deli sections across the country.

To celebrate and advertise the new menu item, Panera even hired Grammy-winning singer Michael Bolton to perform a rendition of his hit song “When a Man Loves a Woman” rethemed as “When Some Mac Loves Broccoli Cheddar.”
