A while ago my mom shared a genius easy weeknight dinner with me.
It’s so ridiculously easy that I’m almost embarrassed by how short this post will be.
Yup, that’s right. It’s a boxed mac & cheese hack.
You might be thinking, “OK, so you add some vegetables to cooked mac & cheese. That’s hardly a hack.” The truth is it’s even simpler than that, & all you have to dirty is one pot plus the colander.
As the macaroni noodles are boiling, you add FROZEN vegetables right to the pot. Strain like usual, & add the ingredients for cheese sauce as you normally would.
It’s super versatile. Use any kind of frozen vegetable mix you like!
Delicious, fast, EASY weeknight dinner.
