Add creamy red lentils to boxed mac-and-cheese for extra protein, fiber and a slightly nutty flavor. The lentils cook together with the pasta and break down to a creamy sauce that’s the same color as the cheese, making these tiny legumes a cook’s secret. Hungry? All you need is five ingredients, one pot and less than 15 minutes. Ready. Set. Dinner!
1 (6-ounce) box macaroni & cheese
1 cup red lentils
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup lowfat (1%) milk
Pinch fine sea salt
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add pasta and lentils and return to a boil. Cook until lentils and pasta are tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well.
Return pasta and lentils to the pan and stir in butter, milk, the contents of the sauce packet and salt. Continue to stir until blended and warmed through.
