      And… all fussy eaters love home-made mac & cheese- recipe below:

    Mac & Cheese- Made with Love

   Let your child choose the pasta shape-cook 8 oz, boil & drain.

   Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees-( you can skip this option for impatient little ones). Melt 3 tbsp. of butter, stir in ¼ cup of flour until thick.

   Add 2 cups of milk and stir slowly until almost boiling. Stir in 1 ½ cup of grated

  cheese into milk. Mix pasta into pot with sauce and serve- or spoon pasta into casserole dish, mix with sauce and top with ½ cup of grated cheese. Place in oven for 18-20 minutes.

  *** I often make extra and place the adult dish in the oven, with mixed in chipotle, peppers , onion etc and let the kids enjoy the stove-top finished mac & cheese ( above).
