Greek Yogurt Mac n Cheese

Every now and then I love to have a high protein meal that is meatless! I craved Mac 'n Cheese, but struggled thinking how I could make it "clean"... but HELLO I found it!!!

What you need:

- 8oz (2c) whole wheat pasta
- 8oz (2c) shredded sharp cheddar
- 1/2 c plain greek yogurt
- 2 c fresh spinach
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder

What to do:
- Cook the macaroni according to the package instructions.
- Place spinach leaves in the bottom of the strainer, and pour the pasta over top to drain and wilt the spinach
- Save 1/2c of the pasta water
- Return the cooked macaroni and wilted spinach to the pot
- Add about 1/4 c of the pasta water to the pot, and stir in cheese until melted.
- Stir in the greek yogurt, onion and garlic powder until smooth
- Stir in remaining pasta water, to thin if needed.
