Sriracha Mac & Cheese Vegetable Bake

Everyone knows pretty much all kids love mac & cheese. But not all kids are so fond of veggies.

Lucky for me, my little guy loves vegetables and fruit, so I never have to be the sneaky chef.

In fact, I just take his favorite meals like this Horizon Classic Mac and pump it full of veggies like broccoli, red and yellow bell peppers and squash. To keep things simple, I roasted the veggies in the oven then mixed them into the mac and cheese.

It’s an easy meal that I can throw together for him in 25 minutes or less and he always comes back for seconds.

I don’t always add Sriracha to it, but in this version I decided to spice it up a bit. That’s the good thing about the Horizon’s Classic Mac, it easily adapts to tweaks and additional flavor enhancers.

And that’s a good thing for me, because this is one of those frequently requested dinner shortcuts that I can easily pull together for the little guy and always keep it interesting.
