Menu Plan Monday 10th Week

Photo from

This past week I tried this recipe for No-Bake Mac and Cheese. It is a healthier version with broccoli, no butter and only 1 cup of cheese. But I still loved it. I love Mac and Cheese and so does Addie in any form. I think this will be a keeper.

No-Bake Mac and Cheese
  • 8 ounces whole-wheat elbow noodles, (2 cups)
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 3/4 cups low-fat milk, divided
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta for 4 minutes. Add frozen broccoli and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the pasta and broccoli are just tender, 4 to 5 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 1/2 cups milk in another large pot over medium-high heat until just simmering. Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup milk, flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl until combined. Add the flour mixture to the simmering milk; return to a simmer and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in Cheddar, Parmesan and mustard until the cheese is melted.
  3. Drain the pasta and broccoli and add to the cheese sauce. Return to the heat and cook, stirring, over medium-low heat, until heated through, about 1 minute.

Now to the menu plan this week. Sorry I don't have many links to recipes this week, most of the recipes are pretty basic.

Monday: BBQ Chicken Salad

Tuesday:Homemade Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese

Thursday: Tacos

Friday:Date Night, resuming our quest for the best fish tacos in Salt Lake.
