Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

Pumpkin Mac & Cheese

This recipe is a twist on a classic mac and cheese with hidden veg.  While putting together a ricotta and pumpkin pie a few years ago, I ended up with this recipe instead.

Located at 102 Henkel Street, Brunswick the cafe is nestled away but serves up some beautiful food. I am really excited because it’s only a 15 minute drive from my work, I’m…
