Kid-friendly Macaroni And Cheese

jump to the recipes

Some elaborate versions of macaroni and cheese don't always appeal to kids - but these are recipes they'll love! They are great for lunch, dinner, or as a snack.

There are simple versions that are similar to your basic mac and cheese. We also have some hearty versions like fajita macaroni and cheese or pepperoni pizza mac. Most of the recipes use macaroni pasta as the base but some build on pre-packaged mac n cheese for convenience.
