Mediterranean Mac and Cheese
What is it about mac and cheese that makes it so comforting, so warming, so… good? Needless to say, I'm talking about the real thing here, not that boxed stuff…Is it the cheese? Is it the creaminess? Or is it the memories linked to it? Whatever it is puts mac and cheese on the top of the list of comfort foods. Are you with me? Good…Now, how many versions of mac and cheese do you think exist out there? I've seen so many, I can't even count them. Made with 20 different cheeses. With chicken. With seafood. Cheeseburger mac and cheese. Even fried mac and cheese wrapped in bacon (thanks, but no thanks). All I have to say is keep it simple, people. And remember that sometimes, less is more.Take our version for instance. The one we grew up eating. OK, so it's not loaded with butter and cream. But, it has all the greatness of mac and cheese. And is good for you. And is easy to make! So you can have your cake and eat it, too. And your mac and cheese. Now, how's that for comfort?
