Kid wants cheesy noodle; you want to add some veggies. Win-win ?
Sweet Potato Mac and Cheese
Microwave a sweet potato until it's tender and cook pasta according to the package. Meanwhile, whisk flour, garlic and milk until steaming. Combine with the flesh of the sweet potato and hit it with an immersion blender until it's smooth. Throw in cheese, salt, pepper, and brown mustard and mix it all up until the cheese is melted. Combine with the noodles and pour it all in to a baking dish. Mix together breadcrumbs, a little olive oil, and a healthy dash (or three) of Old Bay seasoning, and sprinkle this on top of the noodles. Put in an oven and broil for 2 minutes to brown the breadcrumbs.
Serve with a PB sandwich on the side 'cause the kid's been asking for it all day.
