Day 225: Spinach Mac and Cheese

Spinach mac and cheese is one of my favorite meals! Its filled with melty cheese and pasta. It’s a dream come true.

This is my favorite mac and cheese recipe! I love the addition of spinach because it adds a different kind of texture. If you’re not a fan of spinach, feel free to omit.

Note that because of all the spinach in the mac and cheese, your sauce will turn green. Don’t be worried!

Once you add your sauce to the pasta, it will turn white. Also 2 cups in the spinach is best! Don't do more or less.

This mac and cheese is creamy, cheesy and you will definitely ask for seconds. I love to top my mac and cheese off with toasted breadcrumbs. It adds a great crunch!
