Unfortunately, many comfort foods are high in fat and calories and low in vitamins. Traditional macaroni and cheese recipes often exceed 700 calories for a modest portion and more than 40 grams of fat. You can enjoy this recipe for macaroni and cheese without the guilt and with added nutrition from spinach and whole wheat macaroni!
This recipe is so simple and so good! Say goodbye to dry, boring pork chops. These pork chops are moist and full of flavor, and it’s a great recipe for those leftover apples from the fall harvest!

It’s also a versatile recipe that lends itself well to adding whatever vegetables you have in the fridge!
