Thanks for sharing!

Make an easy supper loaded with vegetables with this One-Pot, Everything Macaroni and Cheese!

Who doesn’t love macaroni and cheese? Our family sure loves it! While it makes a fantastic side dish for any supper, we especially love it with Smoked Honey BBQ Ribs, Smoke Meatloaf, or Meatballs. Sometimes I just don’t have the energy to make a whole meal with lots of sides of vegetables and carbs. That is why I love recipes that include everything into one pot! All the carbs, vegetables, and protein make this One-Pot Everything Macaroni and Cheese a new favorite for me to cook, and the family to eat.

  • sweet onion

  • green beans
  • tomatoes
  • broccoli
  • portabella mushrooms
  • spinach
