Mac ‘n Cheese Makes the World go Round

Soooo as you can see tonight’s dinner was a lovely bowl of macaroni and cheese-y delciousness!

Before dinner, though, I headed out on a lovely 3 mile run.  I was originally planning on heading over to the gym, but I decided I would rather run outside and so that’s what I did.

I will admit it wasn’t the easiest run, I was a bit tired, but I fought my way through it and felt fairly accomplished at the end.

I came home and the man had followed my instructions to put the mac n cheese in the oven. As you’ll recall, last night, I prepped the sauce and pasta last night, so all that needed to be done was to combine the two and put them into the casserole dish and bake.  I topped them off with a dusting of breadcrumbs and fresh Parmesan cheese.  I served this up with some steamed broccoli topped with some red pepper flakes and some garlic.

This recipe was inspired from a post by Jenna and has been on my mind since I came across it.
