Cheesy Mac and Vegetables

recipe ingredients
16 oz dry pasta such as macaroni or penne
2 Tbsp. margarine
3 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
pinch ground nutmeg
3 1/2 cups 1% low fat milk
6 oz reduced fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
10 oz pkg frozen mixed vegetables

recipe directions
Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large heavy saucepan, melt the margarine over medium heat. Using a whisk, add flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Gradually whisk in the milk and cook until it comes to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for about 1 minute, then remove from heat. Stir in the cheeses until they have melted. If necessary, use a hand blender or other tool to blend mixture until creamy smooth.

Place frozen vegetables in a colander and drain the pasta over the vegetables to help them thaw. (or thaw in advance) Add pasta and vegetables to the cheese sauce and mix well.

    It was very bland. I suggest people add something for some kick.

    This was bad. I did not like it at all, we didn’t even end up eating it :( I can’t point the finger at just one thing either, it was all of it. Gross.
