This is a great recipe for individual mac and cheese – I used GoGo Quinoa macaroni noodles! So here’s the recipe for quinoa macaroni and cheese!

First things first, make the noodles! Bring a pot of water to a boil and then add in the macaroni noodles.

While those are cooking, in a pot, heat up some butter and quickly saute some green onions. Once cooked, add in 1 cup of milk. Quickly add in some flour.. You’ll have to keep stirring otherwise the milk will burn to the bottom of the pan.

It should start to get thicker. If it doesnt, add in some cheese.. it will then thicken up a lot more. If it does thicken, add the cheese anyway. I used a blend of mozzarella, cheddar and monterrey jack.

Taste it to make sure it tastes yummy.

Then fill the personal sized oven safe bowls with the cooked macaroni. Then drench it in sauce and cover with grated gruyere cheese.

Bake at 350 until the cheese has browned. I also broiled it a little bit so that it got a bit more brown. and it was SO GOOD.
