Cheap and easy mac and cheese for all the family Mac and cheese is my all time favourite dish - I could eat it every week (or every day)….although that probably wouldn't be the smartest decision health wise considering the amount of cheese I put in. However I do like to cook it every so often as a treat. My favourite recipe is this mac and cheese with lardons, leeks and spinach ..

This tastes just like regular Macaroni and Cheese but has no pasta, meaning much fewer carbs!
