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.
A mixture of leftover steamed vegetables
Leftover cooked pasta (penne makes good finger food)
A slice of onion, finely chopped
1 – 2 tsp butter
1- 2 tsp plain flour (same as butter)
A slosh or so of milk 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.
