This looks so good. Now the noodles have little friends they are usually so lonely.

That's so funny Katherine. What a great thing to say to your kids to get them to eat their vegetables.

Is there a brand of Mac n' Cheese you recommend that isn't super high in sodium? I know Kraft is loaded with it.
