      Yummy, but hey, not all that healthy unless maybe whole wheat pasta. Easy and better substitute for frozen veg's: chop a little extra of each veg you make/use during the week (onions, broc, carrots, whatever), and use that to put this together on the weekend for a Mon./Tues. dinner! I steamed the broc a little, and sauteed onions and carrots, before mixing in. Chopped red peppers went in raw. Sauce is delish. I added some Romano/Parm mix on top as well.

      This is a great mac & cheese recipe, you can't even tell it's low sodium, which is awesome!! I used the same vegetables only fresh instead of frozen and did 1 C. cheddar cheese and 1 C. swiss. It was simple to put together and tasted amazing, thanks for sharing!!
