100 days real food Mac and Cheese

Submitted by: BRITTLBRAN


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    INGREDIENTS
    1 – 1 ½ cups of dried whole-wheat macaroni noodles, boiled according to package directions
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
    1 cup milk
    1 cup grated cheese (you can use any type of cheese…we usually use sharp white cheddar or a mix of different cheeses works well too)
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Optional topping: grated parmesan cheese or whole-wheat breadcrumbs
    opt: 1- 10 oz bag frozen vegetables

Directions

INSTRUCTIONS
Directions
Warm vegetables until almost cooked.
Melt the butter in a sauté pan over medium heat.
Whisk in the flour and keep whisking for about 1 – 2 minutes until the roux (which is equal parts flour and butter or oil) starts to darken, but does not burn.
Turn the heat down to low and quickly whisk in the milk. Turn the heat back up to medium and keep whisking until the mixture starts to thicken and all lumps of flour are dissolved.
Stir in the grated cheese and once it melts mix in the cooked noodles and warmed up vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
