Six-Ingredient Cheesy Veggie PastaSubmitted by: SPARK_RECIPES
IntroductionThis homemade mac-n-cheese is packed with veggies and is ready in just 20 minutes! This homemade mac-n-cheese is packed with veggies and is ready in just 20 minutes!
2 cups whole-wheat elbow macaroni
2 cups California blend vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots)
1/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
1/2 cup shredded low-fat sharp Cheddar
1 t Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Don't skip the Dijon, even if you don't care for mustard. It blends right in but adds a lot of tang to the dish.
Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables according to package directions.
When the veggies are ready, mix them with the yogurt, cheese, mustard, and pepper in a medium bowl.
Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente. Once cooked, drain the pasta and immediately return it to the pot.
Add the veggies and cheese mixture to the pasta and stir to combine. The heat from the pasta and the veggies will melt the cheese.
