Smart Foods: Lazy Green Mac and Cheese

We couldn't wait to get our hands on Eat Complete, the new cookbook by Drew Ramsey, M.D., the Columbia University psychiatrist who's also a member of our advisory board. The book is packed with brain-boosting recipes, including these three that turn kid-favorite burgers, pizza, and mac and cheese into superfoods!


  • Olive oil
  • 8 ounces quinoa pasta, such as elbows, penne, or shells
  • 4 cups mustard greens or kale, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 7-by-11-inch baking dish with olive oil.
  2. Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Once cooked, drain and spread in the prepared dish.
  3. Sprinkle the chopped greens and cheddar cheese over the pasta and place dish in oven.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese has melted and is bubbling hot. Remove from oven and serve.
