“Mac & Veg”

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.
