Go ahead, serve your family these crunchy, crumb-topped creamy noodles and watch them dig in. You don’t have to tell them that there are hidden sweet potatoes and onions puréed into the cheesy sauce, adding to the vegetable content of the meal, or that the macaroni is made from healthy whole grain. Why say anything? Just listen to the happy sounds of people enjoying a cheesy mac.
