I'm always looking for meals that are "kid friendly" to make when my grandchildren visit. There are four of them and each of their tastes vary. This meal went over big time! They ALL love mac and cheese, and this was a good way to incorporate protein and veggies into the mix. (I used a 16 oz. bag of frozen brocolli, cauliflower and carrot combo, thawed) Thanks for posting, kaliwags!
