Pesto Spinach Macaroni and Cheese
This Pesto Spinach Macaroni and Cheese is an easy, gourmet mac and cheese that’s ready in twenty minutes start to finish!
Guys, I have a confession. Some days, I just don’t care how easy a 15 minute meal is– my brain hurts, and I don’t want to cook. Does this happen to you too? On those nights, my first instinct is to have the husband cook dinner. (The cat, of course, still refuses to help either of us cook.) If that doesn’t work– there’s Indian take-out. If take-out falls through– I reach back into the deep, dark recesses of my kitchen pantry– and pull out a box of mac and cheese. Not just any mac and cheese, mind you– I like the fancy stuff. The organic, ‘let’s pretend this powdered cheese came from a cow’ stuff.
However, even the fanciest boxed mac and cheese always leaves me full of doubt. I’m left wondering, ‘What exactly did I just eat?’ and ‘Would homemade mac and cheese really have been harder to make??’ The answer, of course, is NO– homemade mac and cheese is NOT difficult to make, and doesn’t take much longer to prepare than the boxed kind. Plus, with homemade mac and cheese– there’s no suspicious powdered cheese packet! This Pesto Spinach Macaroni and Cheese takes about 20 minutes, start to finish, and is bursting with cheesy goodness.
