Vegetable Macaroni and Cheese

INGREDIENTS

  1. 1 cup fresh cauliflower finely chopped and steamed
  2. 1 cup uncooked whole wheat or rice pasta (over-cooked for the little ones; diced penne, rigatoni or elbows work well for finger foods)
  3. 1 cup yellow squash (or acorn or butternut squash) cubed and steamed
  4. 1 yellow pepper diced and steamed
  5. 1 cup mild shredded cheddar cheese
  6. ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  7. 1 Tbsp olive oil

PREPARATION

  1. 1Cook pasta as per package directions. I love using the brown rice shells.
  2. 2Steam all vegetables. Make all items softer (steamed for longer periods of time) if you are cooking for younger infants. Adult portions can be removed first and put aside.
  3. 3Add all ingredients to a nonstick, cooking-sprayed or olive oiled baking dish.
  4. 4Bake uncovered in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until cheese melts and/or bubbles and browns a bit.
  5. 5Add a small extra layer of cheese and a sprinkle of bread crumbs for a rich finish, if desired. Broil in oven for additional 10 minutes until top browns.
