  • Thanks for sharing this recipe


  • this is a good recipe but my kids won’t eat green


  • Yes to macaroni cheese, the spinach? I might try it.


  • love a good mac and cheese, great idea adding the spinach in, even the kids will love this


  • Sounds very tasty – thank you


  • I reckon you could add all sorts of vegies to this recipe, and it would taste amazing. I love using garlic & chilli to savoury dishes, so I’d definitely add some to this. I guess you could also substitute chicken or another meat for the bacon too.


  • thanks should be a easy recipe to hide some extra vegies in
