It is especially important to our family to gather for family meals. It probably started when I was a child, we always sat and ate dinner at the table. Every night a hot meal and looking back I’m not sure how she did it. Being a busy mom of three now I know how easy it is to not make time for family meals. With the spring and summer season coming we are starting to spend even more family time together.
One meal I know I can always please my family with is diner, even on nights when we are in a rush. I enjoy taking things I already have in my kitchen and creating something my family will enjoy! Macaroni and cheese is my go to on a busy night and I can easily serve it with steamed veggies and feel good knowing my family has had a filling meal.
To cut down o the dairy products I like substituting Silk Almond Milk Products where I can so instead of a milk and butter base I cut down on fat by using Silk.
- 3 cups cooked pasta
- 2 cups Silk Almond Coconut Blend
- 2 cups aged cheddar
- 1/4 cup Italian blend cheese
- 1 large shallot chopped
- 1 chopped bell pepper
- 1 clove chopped garlic
- 3 TBSP chopped fresh parsley
You’ll want to have your ingredients prepped so start first by grating the cheese. I let my kiddos get involved and they don’t mind grating between bites of cheese! I also chopped and cooked the garlic, shallot and bell pepper.
I’m a huge fan of simple dinner ideas so just toss everything in is kind of y main method. Melting the cheese and ilk first ill create a more even constancy.
Add in the savory ingredients and mix together. You’ll also want t season to your liking.
Allow your mac and cheese to cook together for another 10-15 minutes. Then serve with a topping of fresh parsley!
