If you are like most people, you are craving more comfort foods during this time of uncertainty in our world. It is totally normal to want warm and deliciously cheese pasta in our bellies when our world has turned upside down.
If you want a healthier version of mac n cheese I got you covered! This recipe is super easy and takes the same amount of time to make as the blue boxed version.
What Do You Need to Make it?
Here’s the best news! You only need a few ingredients to make it and no crazy kitchen gear either!
You will need:
1 Cup of Milk
4 TSP Flour- I used my gluten free flour blend
1/4 TSP of Salt
1/3 Cup of Packed Cheddar Cheese- That means you squish as much as you can into the 1/3 measuring cup. 🙂
A Pinch of S&P.
1 Box of Banza Protein Pasta– You can choose the shape. There is also a red lentil pasta with similar amounts of protein that would work perfectly.
Who doesn’t love getting 23ish G of Protein from the pasta alone!
