I’ve come up with a Mac and cheese that you do NOT have to feel one ounce of guilt about… It is so so good and… healthy!
I find there are a lot of Mac and cheese recipes out there and they are all aimed at once thing… Who can make the creamiest and cheesiest of them all!
Although cheese is super delicious and amazing I did find the last Mac and cheese recipe I tried out was almost too rich and my stomach hurt pretty bad after. So I set out on a mission to create one that is loaded with protein AND has a little veg in it too.
I’m telling you I have been beyond obsessed with broccoli slaw lately as it is very versatile and kind of just blends in well with whatever you make. You can also freeze it which is huge. I’ve made a delicious pasta with it before so I decided to give it a go with this recipe and I KNOW it turned out because my picky Blair absolutely loved it!
Hope your loved ones love it as well. I know you, the chef, will love it too because it is so easy to make as well.
