My kids love this quinoa mac and cheese. They know it's quinoa, and it didn't really remind them of classic macaroni and cheese, but either way they love it and it's a great way for them to eat healthy. I am adding this to our weekly rotation for sure.

This quinoa "mac and cheese" was surprisingly delicious. It's perfect for introducing kids to eating quinoa as well. I fed this to my nieces and nephews and they were instant fans. Next time I make this I will try mixing in vegetables like carrots. So delicious!

Nothing about this recipe reminded me of mac and cheese. It was cheesy quinoa, and it tasted good, but not mac and cheese. The kids liked it, so that's always a win. I didn't add the green onions and used 1 large egg instead of two.

The only thing that would make this recipe better is maybe using more cheese? I love the method of baking it in the even like traditional mac and cheese. This was really good and kid friendly.

This recipe was just like making mac and cheese, baked and all. I used cheddar and pepper jack cheese, my two favorites. It was delicious and much healthier than traditional mac.
