Creamy Cheddar Superfood Pesto Mac and Cheese Casserole

Green mac and cheese sounds like something from a Dr. Seuss book (a sequel to Green Eggs and Ham, perhaps?). But its emerald hue shouldn’t turn you off to its deliciously savory, cheesy taste. One bite and you’ll be in heaven! The best part about this easy Three Bridges recipe is that the addition of the pesto sauce makes it look like you spent hours in the kitchen working on a fancy pasta dish, when in actuality it only took you an extra 30 seconds.
