Mighty Mac N’ Cheesy

Mighty Mac N’ Cheesy

There’s Macaroni cheese. And then there’s Annabel’s Mighty Mac N’ Cheesy!

This recipe has serious kid appeal.  Packed with blended veggies, it’s the tastiest fuel after a busy day or work and play.

Blending the veggies and stock is a doddle with the Dualit Hand Blender. It’s a super speedy dinner for hangry tots, kids and grown-ups.
