Well, I know what I will be making this St Patrick’s day, this delicious Green Mac and Cheese recipe.
And no I haven’t converted into a food blogger, haha but I was browsing some Irish recipes on Youtube and came across this version.
I was worried there would a lot of food dye which is just a terrible idea. But this is packed with loads of greens in the sauce and when cooked with the pasta.
Perfect for those little kids that don´t want green vegetables. It´s like pesto sauce. But the flavour is so delicate.
Enjoy this lovely dish and let me know in the comments if you ended up making it.

1 lb elbow macaroni
3 c whole milk
1 c packed fresh spinach

Fun fact about St Patrick:
- Irish immigrants began observing St. Patrick’s Day in Boston in 1737 and the first St. Patrick’s Day parade in America was held in New York City in 1766.
- For most of the 20th century, Saint Patrick’s Day was considered a strictly religious holiday in Ireland, which meant that the nation’s pubs were closed for business on March 17. In 1970, the day was converted to a national holiday, and the beer resumed flowing.
I will have an article coming soon with some more fun facts about St Patrick but for now you will have to stick to this lovely green mac and cheese.
