We put a little twist on an all-American favorite, mac and cheese, and we loved the results so we decided to share! We think you’ll enjoy this as much as we did! We used whole grain pasta for some added fiber and some wonderful Greek cheeses we bought at the local Greek market and added some grass fed ground lamb and made it a one pan meal. Great for these cold winter days!
