Healthy Stovetop Mac and Cheese – This healthy mac and cheese is quick and easy. Stove top mac n’ cheese made with Greek yogurt.
My son didn’t have school on Monday, so my week is completely thrown off. I can not believe that today is Wednesday. I am starting to freak out, knowing that Easter is only 5 days away, and I have nothing ready. Aside from knowing we are having ham for dinner. My in-laws arrive tomorrow, so I really better get my butt in gear. Meals to plan for the rest of the weekend, Easter basket to stock, house to clean, and shopping to get done. Going to be a busy day!
A quick and easy dinner is going to be on the menu today. This healthy stovetop mac and cheese is perfect. In the time it takes to boil the pasta, you are ready to eat. It is made creamy with Greek yogurt, so their is added protein to bump up the health factor. I used whole wheat pasta as well, so it really is pretty minimal on the guilt for a mac and cheese dinner.
I added a little bacon to this, because I had a few slices that needed to get used up. But you can really add whatever you want to this. Peas, broccoli, sausage, chicken, or just leave it plain. No matter what you do the, the whole family will be very happy with dinner. Gotta love a stove top mach and cheese, like this Panera Copycat Macaroni and Cheese as well.
