This take on the classic comfort food is full of healthy colourful vegetables.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1 box of whole wheat macaroni
  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 bell peppers
  • 1 onion (I used a red onion because it was what I had on hand and adds some nice colour)
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • ½ cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of soup base
  • thyme
  • salt
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ⅓ cup whole wheat flour

  • 2 ½ cups of milk

  • 1 tablespoon of mustard

  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese (I used marble)

Step 2: Roast Vegetables

Preheat the oven to 425°F

Chop all the vegetables and garlic into nice bite-sized pieces and toss them into a baking dish.

Add the water and soup base.

Sprinkle liberally with thyme and add a pinch of salt.

Mix it up and then put it in the oven for 40 minutes.

Step 3: Cook Pasta & Make Cheese Sauce

While your veggies are roasting, start making the cheese sauce.

Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat.

Add flour and stir.

Slowly stir in the milk.

Add the mustard and cheese and continue stirring until it's all combined.

Boil a pot of water and cook the macaroni until al dente.

Drain and add to the sauce pan.

Mix in the roasted vegetables and serve. Yum!
