You'll need:

macaroni & cheese (boxed is fine but I don't recommend Kraft)
breaded fish fillets
broccoli
mushrooms
greek yogurt
shredded cheese
ranch powder or garlic salt
sriracha (optional)

You can replace the fish with chicken or any other protein-packed ingredient. The greek yogurt and broccoli add protein, too.

  1. Sounds yummy. he other day for lunch we fried up some tilapia and threw it in with some mac n cheese..oh wow was it awesome.We also make this dish we call grown up mac n cheese. You take a box of Velveeta mac n cheese, we use the generic, and when it is done add some pizza sauce, about 1/4 cup and some roasted bell peppers, then right before serving add shredded mozarella…it is so yummy.

  2. Hello :) what type of Mac and Cheese do you recommend?

    1. We use gluten-free but any is great!

  3. How much fish and yogurt? Recommended amount of vegetables?
