Veggie Mac and Cheese

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.
