Certain dishes make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You know the ones: mashed potatoes, grilled cheese sandwiches, and of course, just about all pasta dishes. These are often firmly off the menu if you're feasting in the name of clean eating...until now, that is. This recipe is a refreshed version of everyone's ultimate comfort food: mac and cheese. Made with healthy ingredients, it's comfort food that supports your physique and performance goals. This dish can be made two ways—paired with cauliflower if you're looking to get shredded, or served with quinoa or wheat macaroni if it's bulking season. Either way, it's delicious. Get ready for some guilt-free gains!
