No-Bake Macaroni & Cheese

April/May 2006, EatingWell Serves Two

Not only is this ultra-creamy version of mac-and-cheese nearly as fast as the boxed variety, but your family will be able to pronounce every ingredient. If they aren't broccoli fans, substitute a frozen vegetable of your choice.

I thought it came out really good. My two year old agreed and had two servings of it. Obviously not as good as traditional mac & cheese, but pretty great for being a healthy version.

I would cut a tbsp of flour out OR make a simple roux instead. Because the finished product had a pronounced floury taste- otherwise- pretty yum!

Awesome recipe! My 3-1/2 year old who usually won't touch mac and cheese ate all of it, and my 11 month old loved it too. Even my husband (the pickiest in the group) ate the broccoli. My sauce didn't taste flour-y at all. So delicious. Is it still healthy if you eat double the serving? Oops :)
