I love giving my kids fresh, wholesome ingredients. That's why when my kids request mac & cheese, they know it's going to have a protein and veggie in it! They gobble this up so fast, but I've made sure that the quantity below ensures I have some leftovers . . .
This recipe is made in the Large Flared Saute Pan, which many of you have purchased this month with the January special:

2 cups dry elbow macaroni
4 cups water
1/4 cup butter
1 cup milk (I usually use whole milk)
2 cups spinach or peas or any other veggie your kids like
1 can tuna (7 oz) or canned chicken, etc. (drained)
2 cups shredded cheese of choice
Boil macaroni and drain by using the lid of the pan (no need to dirty a strainer! we're moms - who needs another dish to clean!) Add butter to hot noodles - stir to melt. On low temp (remember, our stainless conducts heat very efficiently, so don't turn it up too hot!) add milk, stir, add veggie, stir, add tuna/meat, stir, add cheese and stir to melt
- it's almost as easy as the boxed kind and it's definitely MORE DELICIOUS and HEALTHY!
