What You Will Need:

 

Four cups of some whole wheat/high fiber macaroni noodles (cooked)

One Tbsp of butter

One Tbsp of all purpose flour

One cup of milk (skim)

One clove of garlic (minced)

Three oz of shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Three oz of shredded Gruyere cheese

One egg

One egg white

One cup of freshly cooked spinach

Some salt & pepper to taste

 

 

 

What You Will Need:

 

First, you will need to pre-heat the oven to four-hundred degrees F. Then, you will lightly mist a twelve cup muffin tin with your cooking spray, and set it aside. Next you will take a small sauce pot and use it to melt your butter over a med heat. Now add the flour and mix it into butter while stirring until it is nice and thick. Next stir in your garlic and milk. Bring that mixture to where it is just under a boil. Then you will add the two cheeses and whisk them all together until they are thoroughly combined into a beautiful sauce. Now remove your cheese sauce from heat and then mix in both the egg white and egg until fully combined. Now take your large bowl and combine your spinach, pasta, the salt and pepper, and your cheese sauce. Mix everything together thoroughly. Now you will need to spoon in the mixture into the muffin tin cups and bake them for about ten to fifteen minutes or until your tops of the “muffins” are slightly brown. Lastly let them sit and cool for about five minutes before taking them out of the muffin tin. Serve and enjoy!
