Quinoa Mac and Cheese

Quinoa Mac and Cheese is an easy way to pack a lot of protein and make a childhood favorite healthier. This recipe was made by my very good friend and fellow teacher, Sarah.  I’m always checking out her lunch and complementing the things she makes. Soooo, I guilted her into sharing with the Sisters & Misters community! She even brought some in for me to taste – SO good!  She adapted this recipe from Moni Meals.

This will be in my rotation for easy dinners. Sarah paired this meal with steamed broccoli! Great choice 🙂
