Easy Mac-N-Cheese

So this recipe is mostly for the kids when they want an ooey-goey cheesey comfort food that only can be satisfied by the cheesiest, creamiest goodness that comes with home-made.

It takes no longer than making a box mix, but I feel so good about knowing what is in it! You can make some simple substitutions to make it (fairly) clean eating, which I love!

2 c. uncooked macaroni noodles (use whole wheat for healthiest option), cooked and drained

Melt in a saucepan:
1/4 c. butter

Stir in:
1/4 flour (whole wheat also works here, but will give it a more "grainy" texture)
and cook for 1 minute until bubbly.

2 c. milk and cook over medium high heat until thickened. Stir in salt and pepper to taste along with 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese (you can experiment with other cheeses, such as muenster).

Add in the pasta, sprinkle with paprika (optional), stir and serve!

This also makes a great pot luck meal for the littles, as you can keep it on the warm setting.

Serve with broccoli for a complete, meatless meal!
