Pasta is a favorite at home and Miss P will have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I especially like this dish for its really quick and a healthier take on the standard Mac & Cheese.
It’s so easy to open a packet of ready to cook cheese pasta that kids love! My kid likes it, but there’s nothing real in that box. I hate feeding it to my kid and I dare say that you hate it too.
But I can guarantee you will love this quick version that’s filled with extra goodness.
