6 cups water
1-7.25 oz. box macaroni & cheese dinner that comes with a powdered cheese packet (I like the brand in the blue box that claims it’s “the cheesiest”.)
2 cups frozen corn, carrots, and peas
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 1/2 cups organic chicken stock
1 1/2 cups skim milk
Bring water to a boil. Cook pasta only in boiling water for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally so pasta doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Do not overcook. When done, drain. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and powdered cheese and whisk together. Add chicken stock and milk. Whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil. Add vegetables. When vegetables are soft, stir in the cooked pasta and serve. Have with a glass of water.
