Who doesn’t love mac ‘n cheese?
It’s always a winner in our house, but we up the nutritional content by using wholemeal pasta and adding steamed or leftover vegetables.
- 2 cups steamed vegetables
- 2 cups of leftover cooked pasta
- 1/2 an onion
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- 1 Tbsp. plain flour (same as butter)
- milk (enough to make a sauce)
- Grated cheese to taste
- Sauté onion in butter over low heat until soft. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute before adding the milk and stirring well over low heat to make a thick sauce.
- Stir in the grated cheese, pasta and vegetables and heat through.
