OK, this is my son's absolute favorite and for that matter is even mine.... lol
So, I try to make it little healthy for him. So, here is my recipe. The picture that you will see below is in my son's favorite Lightning McQueen bowl :)
Mac N Cheese *my style
Elbow Pasta - 1 cup (cooked and drained as per package instructions)
Milk - 1/2 cup (I used half-n-half, but feel free to use any of your preference)
Peas and Carrots mix - 1 cup (I cooked them along with pasta itself)
Swiss and Sharp Cheddar Cheeses - 1/2 cup each (you can take any mix you want, but sharp cheddar gives a real good look and taste to it)
Butter - 2 tbsps
Salt - as per taste
Black Pepper - as per taste
- Cook pasta and veggies together with some salt in the water. I cooked for about 15 min. (I like my pasts well cooked)
- Drain pasta and veggies and put them back in the new pan or the same one (as per your preference)
- Add butter, milk and cheeses to the pot and mix well till chesses and butter are all melted and mixed well. Cook for about 2-3 min.
- Sprinkle some salt and pepper per your taste and mix well
Serve warm in a bowl along with a side of salad or don't feel too bad if your kid doesn't eat salad as you have already mix some veggies in it :) I like to sprinkle some red chilli flakes on top as I like mine spicy.
I am sending this to Sowmya's Cooking with Pasta event.
Till next post, take care.
