This was incredibly easy, and my 9 year old said it was one of the best things I have ever cooked! He had 4 servings! Next time I make this, I will have to double the recipe. Everyone went back for more!
One Pot Spinach & Feta Macaroni and Cheese
time needed: 25 min.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
pinch of salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 fresh tomatoes, diced
1 bag (8 to 10 ounces) fresh baby spinach (I only used 5 ounces, was all I had)
½-cup crumbled feta cheese
½-cup cubed white cheddar cheese
¼-cup part skim shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups elbow macaroni (whenever possible, use whole grain/multigrain macaroni)
1 cup low sodium vegetable broth
1 cup unsweetened almondmilk
½ teaspoon Italian Seasoning
salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
parsley for garnish
Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. (Use a pan with a lid)
Add onions and pinch of salt; cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened.
Stir in garlic and continue to cook for 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
Add tomatoes, spinach, cheeses, macaroni, vegetable broth, milk,and seasonings.
Mix to combine and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
Lower heat to a medium-low, cover with lid and continue to cook for 12 to 15 minutes, or until pasta is cooked. Stir frequently, about every 3 minutes, to prevent sticking.
Remove from heat and stir.
Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
