In the mood for some carbs and cheese?
I thought you’d say “yes.”
Sometimes a bowl of pasta with meat and cheese is just what you need at the end of a long day. And the best part, it was ready in under thirty minutes.
To be honest, this dish reminded me of old-school Hamburger Helper. Don’t act like you haven’t eaten the boxed dinner.
Except you can actually pronounce every.single.ingredient. And you don’t need a dictionary to know what you’re eating.
You’ll only dirty two pots for this dish but it’s totally worth doing a little dish washing. The cheese sauce comes together beautifully and I loved that I didn’t have pre-cook the noodles.
Your husband will love this dish. And if you have kids, they’ll love it, too. In reality, I’m sure your dog would love this dinner.
Ground beef + Noodles + Cheese Sauce + spices = Chili-Mac and Cheese
aka, Your dinner tonight.
I only made a few changes to the recipe: I used gluten-free quinoa elbow pasta and I used almond milk instead of skim milk. Oh, and I used regular sharp cheddar cheese. Y’all know I don’t believe in reduced-fat cheese.
Eating reduced-fat cheese is a sin in our household.
