Lovers of macaroni and cheese rejoice.

The cheesy food’s July 14th national day is approaching, and to celebrate Bob Evans Farms announced that it would be partnering with celebrity couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey.

The duo used the New Albany, Ohio-based company’s product two create their own custom recipes that consumers can check out for themselves on the brand’s website.

“One of our favorite things to do as a family is make dinners together,” Vanessa Lachey said. “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 custom recipe features Bob Evans’ macaroni and cheese with a toppings bar of foods such as bacon bits and roasted tomatoes. Nick created a hamburger topped with the brand’s mac and cheese that’s topped with chili and shredded cheese.

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

In addition to teaming up with the Lachey’s, Bobs Evans Farms also will be giving consumers the chance to win free macaroni and cheese for a year on Facebook from July 14 to 16.

“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,” Chris Lambrix, senior vice president of retail business development at Bob Evans Farms, said. “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.
