This week’s project of Healthy Macaroni and Cheese was chosen by Robyn. My mum was skeptical about this one due to the addition of butternut squash of which she is still getting used to eating. But I was keen. Anything to try and be more healthy!
I made this for dinner on Saturday. It was easy to make, although my squash took a lot less than 20 minutes to make so sat on the counter whilst the macaroni cooked.
I didn’t have any parmesan cheese so I used some extra cheddar for the topping. Our verdict was that it was a bit dry. I took to dolloping some ketchup on mine and swirling in some butter (two things that I always reach for when something needs some oomph (or chilli sauce)) but neither helped. I ate quite a bit of it, but mum didn’t. We both agreed however, that this would probably be ideal for getting an extra vegetable inside a child without them knowing.
