I have distinct memories of eating macaroni and cheese from a box as a kid. My mom would only let us have it every so often, (she fed us pretty healthy most of the time, but would allow for occasional exceptions), and when she did I remember thinking it was a real treat! It’s amazing how I now look at that same little blue box in horror thinking about the chemicals and preservatives that are in that little ‘cheese’ packet, (if you even want to call it that!) They didn’t have Easy Mac around when I was a kid, but I can imagine that it would of been one of my favorite snacks…I mean how awesome is it that you can prepare mac and cheese without a stove top or oven, and it’s ready a matter of minutes!?!
I have taken all the of the simplicity of this novel concept, and turned it into a much healthier and satisfying dish! Hope you enjoy!
