Baked Macaroni and Cheddar

I can’t eat Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Dinner. It is just hurts my stomach and feels empty and cheap.

Of course, my one-year-old son loves it. I like to mush up butternut squash (from the frozen vegetable isle) up in his Kraft dinner. If it’s mashed up enough, he doesn’t notice it, and he gets some vegetables in him.
