This meal was inspired by our very own What I Ate Wednesday hostess, Jenn @ Peas and Crayons!
Though her Confetti Mac is fancy, mine could be eaten (and made) by a child.
Perf, if you ask me. 😉
Plus – I used boxed mac and cheese from Trader Joe’s, so at least it was whole grain pasta, right? I was glad to get my veggies in on this easy Friday night meal.
- boxed mac and cheese
- 1/3 cup baby carrots, chopped
- 1/2 cup frozen peas, heated
- 1/2 cup frozen broccoli, heated
- 1 tsp garlic power
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp red pepper taste
- salt and pepper to taste
Cook mac and cheese according to directions on the box.
Stir in veggies of your choice.
Season and stir again.
Yum. A classic with a healthy spin.
