Kids naturally love mac and cheese; green peas provide a sweet pop and added nutrients.

Ingredients

Preparation

In a medium pot of boiling water, cook the pasta for about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Drain the noodles when cooked and set aside.

In another pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the salt, pepper, flour, mustard and nutmeg. Stir constantly until all ingredients are mixed well and form a thick paste.

Add milk and continue stirring until it comes to a boil. Turn heat down to low and add cheese and cooked pasta. Stir until all the pasta is evenly mixed with the cheese sauce. Add frozen peas and cover pot. Turn off heat and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Remove lid and stir pasta and peas. Peas should be a bright green color.
