We all know kids love eating mac and cheese, so why not serve them a healthy one and make it a win-win for both parents and kids? This recipe from Chelsea Table's chef David Seigal uses organic ingredients to make a mac and cheese that's nutritious and delicious.
- 2 Pounds organic pasta, such as Lensi
- 3 Cups organic whole milk
- 1 Cup organic flour
- 3 Ounces butter
- 3 Cups shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 Cup breadcrumbs
Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain, and set aside.
In a small sauce pot over medium heat, melt the butter and flour, whisking constantly, until it starts to color. Add the milk and continue to whisk until the roux is incorporated well. Simmer for 3 minutes, and slowly add the cheese, stirring until smooth. Add the cheese sauce to the cooked pasta and mix well. Top with breadcrumbs and serve.
