Spinach Macaroni and Cheese

So everyone loves macaroni and cheese. Some like it from the box and some like homemade and some like both ways. But everyone also knows that as tasty as macaroni and cheese it, it isn't exactly good for your waistline. Furthermore, when you eat this wonderful stuff you sure don't stop at one serving which then makes it even worse! Which is why I have developed a healthy way to make macaroni and cheese with a little twist - I call it the spinach twist!

Spinach Macaroni and Cheese

1 box of whole wheat macaroni (elbows is best but really any kind of pasta will do)
1 package or bag of fresh spinach
1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. onion salt
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
2 cup of milks
2 packages of cheddar shredded cheese
1/2 onion

1. boil the water, once it comes to a boil add in the pasta and cook it for 7 minutes

2. break of the spinach and take off the ends and put into a blender
3. add the olive oil and puree it. then pour into bowl and add onion and garlic salt and stir - set aside.

4. drain the pasta and then mix cheese and 1/2 cup of milk with the noodles. then add the spinach puree sauce.
5. pour into a deep baking dish and pour in the rest of the milk until the milk is half way up the dish. slice up some onions and put on top and then sprinkle it with salt and pepper

Bake for 50 minutes.

Serve and Yum!
