One Pot Mac & Cheese with Veggies

One Pot Mac & Cheese with Veggies

I love mac and cheese. I love it even more when I don’t have to do a lot of clean up after :)  I love the idea of  not having to make the cheese sauce separately.  This reminds me of sopas (macaroni soup) that I loved as a kid but with the milk broth reduced to a creamy consistency and with  loads of cheese!

I love to say “I love”  ♥ ♥ LOL.  I didn’t say I’m a good writer! :P

You may add any veggies that you like and hopefully your kids will not notice or complain when they do. My 12-year doesn’t like eating veggies but I always tell him he doesn’t have a choice;  he has to eat it whatever is on the table  OR no phone/ipad time. Works. Everytime. Yay to technology! :D

Happy Cooking!

Put milk in a pot, season with salt, ground black pepper, nutmeg and granulated garlic or garlic powder
add the mac
halfway through, add the veggies
then the cheese
Done. Enjoy!
