21 Day Fix Caprese Mac & Cheese

I think I just went over this. Tomatoes, basil & mozzarella = heaven.

I can’t think of a dish that I crave and love more than mac & cheese. There are so many things you can do with it to give a different flavor. It’s creamy and cheesy and filling and delicious. There is something very homey about mac & cheese and I love that it can be made cleaner and healthier.

For this recipe I used quinoa pasta for the 1st time. It was great! Easy to cook and very soft, exactly how I like it. I also used brown rice flour for the 1st time as well. It REALLY thickened up the sauce QUICK! I recommend these 2 products a lot.

Personal Preference Disclaimer: I’d like to add that I do not cook 21 Day Fix recipes incredibly militantly. You may not want to use quinoa pasta as a red, I do. You may count the milk or the brown rice flour, I don’t. Do this plan how you like while staying healthy.
