MOG: Mushroom Onion and Green Pepper Macaroni Cheese. Joosh up your mac ‘n cheese by adding some flavourful ingredients to the cheese sauce.
I’m quite proud of myself, we finally had a meatless Monday! It’s hard when your hubby loves meat, but he was very happy with this!(even licked out the dish!) There’s plenty of protein in the milk and cheese anyway!
