Homemade mac and cheese

Need a healthier version of your favorite childhood Kraft box of mac and cheese? Here's one that will keep the kiddos asking for more! And it's soooooooo easy! We don't eat a whole lot of pasta anymore, but my girls just love this so I do up for lunch about once a week.

All you need:
Bag of whole wheat macaroni
8 oz block of white cheddar cheese
Cup of milk
Tablespoon of unsalted butter
Tsp of garlic powder
Salt to taste

I only use half the bag/box of pasta and half the block of cheese.

1. Boil macaroni, strain and rinse.
2. Shred cheese. Add all other ingredients and continue stirring on medium heat until it all solidifies. Add milk if it seems too thick or to whatever creamy consistency you like :-)
3. Serve. Sometimes I add Parmesan cheese on top for added cheesy goodness!

So easy, right?! It really takes about the same amount of time as the boxed stuff but so much healthier!
