This gourmet mac & cheese recipe by food blog Love & Lemons adds more veggies into the mix with a rich broccoli pesto sauce topped with more broccoli florets and chilli flakes for added spice. The recipe is a great spin on a classic dish that contains a much healthier sauce and added veggies for nutrients.

The recipe begins with a pre-made healthy box of mac & cheese sauce by Annie's mixed in with almond milk, butter and chopped broccoli florets. The pasta is then covered in a homemade broccoli pesto made from pumpkin seeds, basil, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and spices. The pasta is dressed in the pesto first then topped off with the creamy cheese sauce, broccoli florets, diced chives, pepper flakes and more pumpkin seeds for garnish.
