Make-Believe Mac ‘n Cheese

My son will go through stages where he will eat anything I serve him; and other times, he will only eat macaroni and cheese.  He began to ask for his, “out-da-blu-box, mommy.”  I’m not sure of the who, what, when, where and whys; but somehow I said good bye to organic bunny macaroni and cheese (it’s white).  Except, I can’t buy the blue box.  My daughter is allergic to sodium phosphate.  What is one to do?  I like the whole wheat option and I want real cheese without additives.  Mommylution: make believe mac and cheese.

The following recipe is a happy compromise of  a healthy, cheesy, whole wheat, creamy goodness that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.  Added bonus: a whole serving of vegetables too!

  • 1lb box whole wheat macaroni pasta
