Healthy Mac & Cheese With Bechamel-Cheddar Sauce
60 mins (prep 35, cooking 25)
12 ingredients
6-8 servings
Developed this recipe on my own, inspired by multiple recipes I found online. The evaporated milk helps the cheese sauce stay creamy and not curdle when cooked. 100% whole wheat pasta and bread give this recipe a healthy take that adults and children will love!
