Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat elbow macaroni, uncooked
  • 3 cups vegetable or chicken broth, low sodium
  • 1 cup whole milk (replace with rice or oat milk if lactose-intolerant)
  • 2 tbsp butter, salted
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Proteina High-Protein Cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

 

Directions

  1. In a medium pot, add broth, milk, butter, garlic powder, mustard, salt, ground black pepper and bring to a boil.
  2. Add elbow macaroni and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring every few minutes to prevent sticking. Cook until al dente or desired firmness and adding more milk or broth if you wish.
  3. Turn off heat. Add Proteina and Parmesan cheese in portions and stir between each until melted. That’s it.
  4. Serve immediately as mac and cheese tastes best fresh.
