Review of KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Veggie Pasta

When it comes to eating veggies, I prefer that my kids eat them outright (not only when "hidden" in their favorite foods.)  I do support the addition of pureed veggies and other sneaky ways of providing more nutrition in addition to serving veggies alongside meals, however, so I was thrilled to try the new Kraft Mac & Cheese Veggie Pasta.

The neat thing about this product is that the macaroni itself is made from cauliflower.  The nutrition is baked right in!  We tried it, and to be honest, I couldn't tell that there was cauliflower in it.  It did make the pasta softer than perhaps it would otherwise be. (I usually cook it al dente, but this was well-done.)  The total effect was a creamier, richer mac and cheese experience that I actually prefer over the typical fare.
My kids loved it, and the younger ones couldn't tell any difference between this mac and their regular Kraft mac.  My 12-year-old daughter claims to be able to smell a slight veggie smell when cooking the pasta.  Other than that, she said it may have been a tad bit sweeter when eating.

If you have picky eaters at home, you can now get them some additional nutrition without a fight.  This macaroni and cheese comes in two flavors: Original and Three Cheese.  Both are full of creamy, cheesy, goodness -- plus a half serving of cauliflower per cup!
