penne and cheese

I know this picture isn't the best, in fact, it kind of looks gross, but this is my most recent take on good old mac and cheese.

I based the recipe on one of Jennifer Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious recipes. I did some tweaking and came up with this:

  • 2 cups whole wheat penne pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 can of evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup sweet potato puree
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower puree
  • 2 cups shredded white extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/3 cup cracker crumbs
  1. Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package
  2. Add olive oil, evaporated milk, purees, cheese, flour, salt, and pepper to a sauce pan at medium heat and stir constantly
  3. Allow sauce to thicken
  4. Drain pasta and place in a casserole dish
  5. Pour sauce over pasta and mix well
  6. Top with cracker crumbs and pepper
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes
