Keeping this post short and sweet as I type with one hand and hold Luca with the other. 🙂 He’s 9 days old today, and I can’t wait to share more about him with you! 

Ok so this Creamy Greek Yogurt Mac & Cheese is so easy to make! It’s a lightened up version of the classic, but still has all the real cheesy flavor. I like to use a quinoa or chickpea pasta for extra protein and fiber. Hope you guys enjoy!
