"Making Recipes off of Facebook can be risky, but I had a good feeling about this one. I doctored it up a little bit, adding a little bit more cheese and some different spices, and it turned out to be a hit! This Mac and cheese is perfect because it has some super yummy flavors, but is much lighter than the average mac and cheese." -Noah, a cooking instructor at the Doctor Yum Project Kitchen

Add avocado, garlic salt, lime juice, garlic, goat cheese, red chili flakes, basil, and milk in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. Pour over cooked macaroni and mix until coated. Place macaroni mixture into an oven safe baking dish and sprinkle the top with mozzarella and Panko bread crumbs. Broil for 7 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.

Babyfood Option:

Soft noodles are a great finger food for babies. This recipe also has a lot of healthy fat for growing babies. For younger eaters, consider adding ripe avocado and a big spoonful of the noodles to your blender and mix up to your desired consistency.
