Mixed Veg Macaroni ~ few minute wonders

Today I am starting a 'few minute wonders' category where it consists of recipes that can be ready in minutes creating wonders for your family. These can be easy snacks, quick fixes for lunch boxes or slim suppers. Today I am starting this with a Kids' Corner recipe that is Macaroni Pasta ( aka mac-cheese).  When it comes to Macaroni, first things comes to mind is 'Kraft'. I love their instant packs where you can make macaroni in microwave it self. Recently you may have heard the petition about the artificial dies that Kraft uses in their mac-cheese products.  Since then I have stopped using Kraft brand and being careful about picking mac-cheese products. Today I have picked Betty Crocker brand and the pasta came in spiral shape than regular elbows, that made the kids excite about this dish today. Obviously I have sneaked in some good stuff for the kiddos, and they turned me a happy plate and the Dinner routine ended happily for today. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Macaroni Spirals - 1 box
Butter - 2 Tbsp
Milk - 1/2 cup
Mixed Veg - 1/2 cup

  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Add frozen veggie to the boiling pasta. Once the pasta cooked drain the pasta & veggies and keep it aside.
  2. In the same non-stick pan add 2 Tbsp butter. Once the butter melts add milk let it simmer and add cheese powder ( that comes with the package). Add cooked pasta and veggies and mix it well so that cheese sauce is covered and serve warm immediately.

I have given extra Parmesan Cheese Packets (I always save these when we get the Pizza Ordered) on the side and Abhi and Anvi enjoyed the Xtra Cheese effect for today.

Keep it on the Watch, More Few Min Wonders are on the way....

take care until we meet here
