This was my attempt at getting my toddler to eat his vegetables. It is a hit with both kids and adults alike. The vegetables are well hidden, yet they add additional flavor to the mac & cheese. Can be served as a stovetop dish, or baked.
In large saucepan, cook the onions, orange peppers, and carrots in butter on medium heat until all the vegetables are soft and the onions are translucent.
Add the flour and cook for about 2-3 minutes.
Slowly stir in the flour, mixing well, and cook until bubbly.
Stir in the cheese and cook, stirring constantly, until melted.
Pour the cheese sauce over the cooked macaroni noodles and stir well to combine.
You can serve it as is. Or, put it in a casserole dish sprayed with pam, add some breadcrumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
