What a name ?! As soon as I had seen the name of this recipe on a local supermarket’s recipe website, I knew I had to try it.

Who wouldn’t go for a recipe called a Mothership Macaroni and Cheese ?

I am not sure whether the name relates to actually feeding a Mothership full of aliens ! Or all of the oh, so great ingredients.

However, we absolutely love this Mac and Cheese which I only adapted slightly to suit my family’s taste buds.

Best part … there are so many vegetables slipped in without making it taste like a casserole.

Just a very overloaded, scrumptious pasta dish.

The first time I made this Mothership Macaroni and Cheese , I did not know what to expect.

Most certainly not a dish suitable to feed 6 – 8 adults – with leftovers !

After the first batch, I started to half the recipe and it was still enough for 4 adults and leftovers for the lunchbox.

I am sharing the full-size recipe below. Therefore if you have more kids to feed than adults, this dish can easily be stretched to around 10 servings.
