yummy dinner

When I told Mitchel we were having mac and cheese with broccli, cauliflour, and carrots; he said "I can't do mac and cheese with veggies in it. it's gross." So I told him he could pick them out if he wanted.
I actually ended up picking out some of the broccoli because the package had way more broccoli that anything else. I would also reccommend making sure the flour is all the way mixed before dumping it into the pot.
Otherwise this was a great meal and Brighton loved eating the broccoli!

1 package (32 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
6 ounces small pasta shells
1 bag (16 ounces) frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot blend
1-1/2 cups low-fat milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1. In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil over high heat. Add pasta. Return to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add vegetables. Cook until pasta and vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes more.

2. Combine milk and flour in a resealable container; shake well to combine. Stir in to pasta mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Gradually add the cheese, stirring until cheese melts.

Tyler loves those Green Giant Steam Veggies with Broccoli, Cauliflower and carrots in a cheese sauce. If B liked this meal I bet he would love those veggies.
