Complete The Meal

To complete the meal you will need to gather the rest of your major food groups. Here are some suggestions to include with your Gourmet Mac N Cheese:

  • A side-salad of baby spinach leaves and lettuce with sliced carrots and cucumbers.
    • Sprinkle crushed pecans or walnuts for a protein-boosted and a little crunch!
  • A Fruit cup of watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew
  • A small bowl of baked beans for added protein
  • A large glass of  some “High-Quality H20” (The Waterboy 1998)

NOTE: Enjoy this dish alone or make for a party or big event. If your audience is composed entirely of carnivores, feel free to add in sliced chicken or steak to mix in with the noodles. It adds a flavor boost as well as tastes absolutely fantastic!
