Mac with Goats Cheese & peas

Mac with Goats Cheese & peas

So where did this beautiful Mac with Goats Cheese & peas actually come from?

Well I got home this evening (hot and bothered – 30 degrees – yuk and no air-con in the office) and I decided I actually needed to eat something that wasn’t salad again!

But I didn’t want to whack the oven on and I wanted something really quick and not too heavy.

I also (bad easypeasylemonsqueezy) had next to nothing in the fridge.

I’m finding that only cooking for myself most of the time is super odd.

I decide when I get home what to make, rather than actually planning! I must put this right. 

Do you plan your meals? Or just stand in front of the fridge, like I do, when I get home) 

However having said that my fridge foraged supper actually turned out to be fanbloodytastic!

So have a go at this easy and delicious Mac

It’s light cheesy and the peas add a lovely freshness, with lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil – you are in nom nom heaven.

I served mine with a lovely green salad with tomatoes and an ice cold beer, or glass of white wine I guess!

Please have a go at this Mac with Goats Cheese & peas, let me know what you think? Summer take on an old favourite?

I guess you could add other stuff too, (bacon, mushrooms, broccoli?) let me know what you add and what works?

Another Mac & Cheese 

I have also developed another Mac N Cheese – in the Slimming World style – go have a look! It’s delicious

I have never tried Mac with goats cheese. I guess it would taste different but I'm intrigued. My daughter loves Macaroni so maybe this would be a good thing to try out! Angela at www.theinspirationedit.com :) #BrilliantBlogPosts
