Instructions:

  1. Make box of mac and cheese. I like to undercook noodles by a minute or two since you’ll be baking it in the oven too. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Prep veggies while mac and cheese cooks. Place veggies in bowls so kids can easily use them.
  3. Put mac and cheese in individual ramekins. Let the kids add their favorite veggies and top with cheese.
  4. Cook in oven for 5-7 minutes, until cheese is melted on top.
  5. Let cool and serve. Make sure ramekins are cool for kids.
