Mac & Veg is one of Chloe’s favorite dishes. Somehow, though, “Mac & Veg” doesn’t sound nearly as delicious as “Mac & Cheese.” And really, it’s Mac, Veg & Cheese. Regardless of the name, Chloe loves it, we think it’s delicious and it has vegetables in it, so it’s a keeper!! Here’s how we make it:
- We use this recipe as our inspiration.
- It calls for 8 oz. of pasta. We make a whole box (13 oz.) but use the measurements in the recipe for everything else. Additionally, we use whole wheat pasta for an added health kick.
- Then, to stretch our sauce (and be tricky parents) we put 1 mashed sweet potato and about the same amount of pureed zucchini.
- Bake as directed and enjoy!!
It’s truly delicious. It makes great leftovers. It even freezes well in cube form and defrosts quickly.
