Recipe by Patti599
This is macaroni and cheese with a few twists - the tang of yogurt and the crunch of sunflower seeds! It's full of protein and calcium also. If you need to, you can use regular white pasta. Soy sauce works in place of worcestershire sauce. Try it with different cheese, though a mix of cheddar and parmesan works well.
- 2 cups whole wheat macaroni, cooked and drained
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 6 large mushrooms, chopped
- 2⁄3 cup sunflower seeds
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 1⁄4 cups cheese, grated
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2⁄3 cup plain yogurt
- 2 pinches pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vegetarian worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 cup breadcrumbs
