Whole Wheat Mac(Penne) & Cheese

My kids always ask for Mac & cheese and I was not in a mood to feed them from blue box. So this time firmly I told them that no more box , I will make you more yummy and healthy mac and cheese for you and you will love it. Now a days both kids asking too much questions about how to make food healthy so keep in that mind I told them that box one is not healthy and we have to stay away from those kind of food so they were agree to give it a try to my way of mac and cheese. I can convince my son to try and eat everything but my princess is very hard to convinced and when she said yes I won half the battle. If you don’t know I have very picky eaters in my house. So to convince everyone it’s a very hard job. Anyway , made it and they enjoyed it too.  So here is the fool proofed recipe from my picky eaters to yours. I convinced them to use penne and not macroni because it does not come in whole wheat. And it was ok.

Ingredients : 

2 cups of Boiled and cooked pasta
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 tbsp.  AP flour
2 tbsp. butter
1 cup of milk
Few strokes of black pepper powder
Parmesan cheese to sprinkle


Cook pasta as per package directions and keep it aside.
Heat a pot, add butter and melt it. Then add AP flour and cook on low flame till its cooked .
Add milk slowly and whisk everything with other hand so no lumps format.
When its nicely mix, add freshly cracked black pepper.
Add cheese in it and mix it till its melt.
Add pasta in it and mix it.
Take it out in serving plate, sprinkle few more black pepper powder and parmesan cheese and give it to your picky eaters and let them finish that bowl in no time.
