Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 1 cup a2 Milk® Whole Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp white cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large pot, cook the macaroni according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  3. While the pasta is cooking, add the milk, 1 cup cheese, butter and garlic powder to a large saucepan set over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is almost melted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Add the cooked pasta to the pan with the sauce. Add the egg and zucchini and stir until completely combined.
  5. Spoon the macaroni and cheese into the prepared muffin pan. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbling.
