My Less Evil Macaroni is pretty painless. Make up a box (1 Large [Barilla] or 2 Small [Kraft type]) of elbow macaroni, your choice, but I would encourage whole wheat pasta. Add 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. Add frozen peas. My kids are all fans. And it isn't quite as processed as the actual box's "cheese" powder, but just as fast and, I think, yummier. Because parmesean cheese is hard, there seems to be less latose and it doesn't bother Charlotte's tummy...much, if at all.
