    4 portabella mushrooms
    2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
    2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
    6 oz. bag raw spinach

    mmmmac and cheese

    Prep time: 55 minutes
    Servings: 4

    8 oz. favorite macaroni
    ¼ cup butter
    3 tbsp. flour
    2 cups milk
    ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
    4 oz. cubed colby/jack cheese
    4 oz. cubed cheddar cheese
    ¼ cup Italian breadcrumbs
    Sea salt and pepper to taste

    Boil macaroni until cooked. Drain and set aside. Preheat oven to 350°.

    While macaroni is cooking, melt butter over low heat in a medium sized saucepan. When the butter is melted, add flour. Raise the heat to medium-high and stir occasionally until bubbles form. Slowly add milk and Italian seasoning, stirring continually. Once it is boiling, reduce heat to low and add cheese. Continue to stir, being careful not to let the bottom of the pan burn. Once the cheese is fully melted, mix in the cooked macaroni. Pour into a baking dish and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Poke several holes in the top with a fork to allow the breadcrumbs to soak in. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350°. Serve right out of the baking dish. Enjoy!
