Creamy Greek Yogurt Mac & Cheese May 28, 2015

I just made this last night and it was amazing. I didn’t add the salt and pepper and also didn’t do the spinach because my son doesn’t like it. It definitely came out creamy and good.

Creamy Greek Yogurt Mac & Cheese

Serves 4-6
Meal type Main Dish
Misc Child Friendly
Website Cooking Ala Mel


  • 8oz elbow pasta
  • 8oz shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup pasta water
  • salt & pepper to taste (I didn't use either)


Step 1
Cook the macaroni according to the package’s instructions (about 8-10 minutes), until al dente.
Step 2
Place the spinach leaves in the bottom of a strainer, and pour the pasta over top to drain and wilt the spinach. Save about 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Return the cooked macaroni and wilted spinach to the pot.
Step 3
Add about 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta water to the pot, and stir in the cheese until melted. Stir in the greek yogurt, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, until smooth and creamy. Stir in the remaining pasta water to thin, if necessary. Serve immediately.
