Creamy Veggie Pasta

This hamburger helper style pasta has a kick of mustard and tons of veggies! Kid favorite and it makes lots! Great healthy alternative to mac n cheese.

Brown, drain and place in 9x13 pan:
1 Ib ground Brown beef with 1/4 cup onion

Meanwhile cook
2 cup macaroni noodles according to package
Drain and place with beef in 9x13 pan.

Melt 3 tlbs butter in pan over medium heat.
Whisk in 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper until smooth.
Slowly add in 2 cups milk and 1/2 cup plain yogurt (or sour cream/cream cheese)

Stir in 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese and 2 tbls mustard.
Stir in 3 cups cooked/steamed mixed veggies. I prefer broccoli and carrots.
