Sneaky Mac and Cheese


This month has been everything about sneaking in Veggies into R's diet.He refuses to eat them whole.So this is one more thing I tried and succeeded in getting him to eat.

R loves pasta..esp buttery pasta with cheese grated on top.So I sneaked in some veggies into his bowl of pasta for lunch today.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup elbow macaroni
1 tsp butter
salt
grated parmesan cheese
cauliflower puree 2 tbsp (you can add more )
(Steam cauliflower florets in the microwave for 5 mins and puree in mixer.Store in freezer)

Method:

Cook the pasta as per instructions in the box
Drain and pour in a bowl
Add a pinch of salt and the cauliflower puree.Stir well.
Add the cheese and mix well.
Serve hot.It was gulped down instantly. Big grin on this moms face for today.
