  • 1 pound elbow macaroni cooked
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 2-4 minutes, stirring regularly.
  3. Whisk in flour to make a roux. Flour will absorb the butter making it look chunky.
  4. Slowly add the milk to the roux, whisking constantly to combine.
  5. Stir in shredded zucchini and cheese. Cook sauce over low heat until cheese is melted and the sauce has thickened.
  6. Add cooked macaroni, toss with sauce and serve!
