Chicken Piccata and Macaroni & Goat Cheese:

My kids absolutely love macaroni and cheese. A lot of times they ask for it for breakfast. Sometimes that’s the only thing they will eat! I try to make it healthier for them by adding vegetables. Cauliflower is a big one in our house. They also love spinach and shredded carrots which add a little sweetness to the macaroni.

I hope you enjoy Constance’s recipes here. I made the macaroni and goat cheese for my kids the other day and it was a huge hit!
