Mac N’ Cheese:
Healthier version, no powdered cheese or preservatives. If you look for the right ingredients – you can pay the same cheap price.
-Cheese of your choice
- Two large russet potatoes
- ¼ cup of a lightly beaten egg
- One cup of all-purpose flour
- Sea salt
Peel the potatoes, boil them in water until their soft, mash them and combine the flour and egg. Mix together until the dough is moist. You can put it in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour. Pour out some flour and start cutting the dough into small pieces, you can place the small pieces against the tines of a fork to get this look. Boil some water, pour them in and in about ten minutes they will float up when they’re ready. You can have them with pesto, tomato sauce, or even just butter and olive oil. They’re fun to make and they’re delicious.
This is a healthier version you can stick to. You can do without butter, eggs and cheese if you don’t have any.
Zoodles: zucchini noodles
You’ll need a courgetti – a tool that cuts the zucchini.
You can just stir fry this for 10-15 minutes, add some tomato sauce and it'll taste just like pasta.
