3 Cheese Mac n Cheese

When it is cold and dumping snow outside, nobody really wants to risk the 5 minute drive to the grocery store – especially me! I mean the chance of my poor car sliding on the tiny hill out of my driveway is already too great…

So for dinner last night, I scrambled together the lonely contents of my fridge and cupboards. Surprisingly the end result was quite delicious and a huge hit with M!

Shell or elbow pasta (half a box or more)

Goat cheese, half a log

1 8 oz Havarti cheese, grated on the thick side of the grater

Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup

2 tbsp butter

salt and black pepper to taste

1 cup (or more) steamed broccoli or other veggie leftovers

-cook pasta in salted water until just al dente

-drain pasta and add black pepper to taste (I like to grind it fresh over the pasta while it drains in the colander)

-stir in butter until pasta is coated throughout

-sprinkle one third of grated Havarti in and stir until melted, repeat with the next third and then the last third

-sprinkle half the Parmesan in and stir until melted

-stir in broccoli and any other veggies

-divide amongst bowls and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan
