Green Mac and Cheese??

Today the kids wanted a special lunch,
considering it was my son's birthday I wanted to make it fun!
He requested Mac and Cheese. I thought - YUCK! But I had a fun idea for a twist.
I took about 6 baby carrots, cooked them in the microwave and then pureed them with 1 cup of spinach. I added about 1/4-1/2 cup of the pasta water to the veggies. Make sure to get it pretty liquified! I swirled it into the mac and cheese and called it "Green Mac and Cheese" Surprisingly they really liked it! I felt a little better having them down this! :)
