This recipe came from the blog (Never Home) Maker. Ashley, the author, was inspired to make a healthy version of traditional mac and cheese. I couldn't go quite as far as she does; for example, where she uses plastic (I mean low-fat) cheese, I used regular, where she uses low-fat milk, I used half and half, and sorry I couldn't do the pureed garbanzo beans at all. But her recipe, my recipe or any variation in between, this is good stuff and a great way to get anyone to eat vegetables without even knowing it. Andrew, the Hub and I were the tasters and we all liked it. I would even double the recipe next time so there would be leftovers for lunches.
