Surprisingly Delicious

Remember when Jessica Seinfeld's book "Deceptively Delicious" came out and she was on Oprah and all the rage. I remember reading mixed reviews about some of the recipes. People were saying that their kids questioned why the chicken nuggets (dipped in broccoli puree) were green. So, I didn't really try any of the recipes at the time.

Well, I recently revisted her recipes through a friend's suggestion. Today for lunch we had Macaroni and Cheese 1. And, the boys ate it up!!!

This is what the toddler looked like at the end of his meal. Two servings down.

{Macaroni and Cheese}
modified slightly from Jessica Seinfeld
3/4 C shaped macaroni
1/2 T olive oil
1/2 T flour
1/4 C non-fat milk
1/4 C pumpkin puree (the original recipe calls for butternut squash puree)
3/4 C shredded cheddar cheese
2 oz cream cheese (I will cut this down to about 1 oz)
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of black pepper and paprika

Cook noodles according to packages direction for al dente. Make a rouxe out of the oil and flour, let cook about 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk. Cook, stirring occassionally, for about 4 minutes and sauce will thicken. Add remaining ingredients and stir until smooth. Mix in noodles and serve.
