Macaroni and cheese is my favorite comfort food. I make it at home regularly and often order it when I’m out at restaurants. This feta cheese version is lighter than some and also contains the flavor and nutrition of spinach.
When I make mac ‘n cheese, I like to make enough for a meal and leftovers. This recipe will feed a crowd as is. The recipe can also be halved, if you don’t like leftovers as much as I do.
