Homemade Stovetop Mac and Cheese was always a favorite of mine growing up! We actually called it "cheese spaghetti" and loved every time Mom made it. Today's recipe is a spin on Mom's recipe and it's great for using any fresh vegetables you have on hand. Especially now with all the delicious garden harvest coming in. 

My awesome neighbor gave us 5 zucchini, so in addition to making zucchini bread, I also wanted to create some new dinner recipes. 30 minute meals are a favorite around here and this one fits that time frame perfectly. The mac and cheese cooks while the vegetables are roasting, so as soon as they come out of the oven, mix them together and it's finished! 

If you're a meat lover, feel free to mix in some cooked chicken or ham when you're adding the vegetables. I'd also love to try it with some roasted sweet corn, tomatoes, asparagus, or bell peppers. The possibilities are endless!
