Sweet Potato, Feta and Smoked Paprika Macaroni Cheese


Sweet Potato, Feta and Smoked Paprika Macaroni Cheese

Who doesn't love Macaroni Cheese? I clearly do judging by the amount of macaroni cheese recipes I have on my blog! This sweet potato, feta and smoked paprika macaroni cheese is my current favourite though, not least because of its vibrant colour! It's comforting, filling and most importantly very yummy and we all love it here, especially on cold autumnal nights.

I tend to make the macaroni cheese the night before, so when we get in from work and school all I need to do is bung it in the oven to bake. I sometimes serve macaroni cheese with salad and garlic bread but more often in the cooler months I'll serve it with some fresh veggies like broccoli and cabbage.

The sweetness of the sweet potato contrasts so well with the saltiness of the feta and don't worry if you have any veg phobic children, they wont even notice the sweet potato as its mashed into the smooth cheese sauce.

 TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE SWEET POTATO MACARONI CHEESE

  • Up the vegetables by adding sweetcorn and peas to the cheese sauce.
  • If you have any leftover chicken or pork from your Sunday roast, add that in too.
  • If you like a bit of heat add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the cheese sauce.
  • The macaroni cheese can be frozen for up to 3 months. Defrost fully before baking in the oven.
