TUESDAY RECIPE: MAC N’ CHEESE CUP MADE BETTER
Going off of last week’s pre-prepared meals, we decided we would try to make everyone’s favorite mac and cheese cups healthier. While alone these delicious entities can feel overwhelmingly bad for you, adding a combination of steamed vegetables and a bed of lettuce can turn this not so filling meal into an entire dinner!
Key: DH – Available in the Dining Hall
1 package of a Macaroni and Cheese Cup
An Assortment of Fresh Vegetables (DH)
2 Cups Water (DH)
Franks Red Hot (optional)
- Steam vegetables in water in the microwave by placing the vegetables and a little water in a container and microwaving it. The more you use, the healthier it is!
- Cook the cup of macaroni and cheese according to the package directions.
- On a plate, lay a bed of lettuce.
- Lay mac and cheese and steamed vegetables onto lettuce. Sprinkle on some Franks Red Hot.
