Finger food eating babies and toddlers love macaroni and cheese, but in many cases serving it means a choice between a self-spoon-feeding mess or hand-feeding your child. Believe it or not, macaroni and cheese can be a finger food. This recipe was gobbled up by my twins, it's healthy and it's fun for them to eat.
While it isn't completely mess-free (the mac and cheese does make hands and faces a little messy), it's a great alternative to boxed and very wet macaroni and cheese. It's also healthier!
Macaroni and Cheese Finger Food Ingredients
2 cups of pasta that is easy to pick up
2 ounces of crumbled goat cheese
2 ounces of grated parmesan cheese
Macaroni and Cheese Finger Food Preparation
Boil your pasta. I chose a corkscrew pasta since it’s easy to grip and fun to jiggle. Rotini, large macaroni, or gnocchi would also work well.
If you will serve it immediately, put the pasta in a colander and rinse with cool water so it isn’t too hot. You want to be sure it remains warm enough to help the cheese get smooth and adhere to the pasta.
Return to pot or to a mixing bowl and add cheeses.
