Mac and cheese is quite possibly one of the best foods ever invented.  To me, it’s truly comfort food.  But it’s so unhealthy so I rarely make it. 

Here’s my recipe for lower in fat mac & cheese for 3-4 people.  It’s pretty good — creamy, cheesy, and yummy. 

Lower in Fat Mac and Cheese 

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of uncooked macaroni noodles (I only had fusilli) and then cook it
  • 3 TBSP of unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded low fat cheese (no fat cheese does not work!)  
  • 1 cup of low fat milk
  • 2 TBSP of flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In a sauce pot, melt the butter and mix in salt and pepper.
  2. Slowly add in the flour, stirring constantly.
  3. Gradually add the milk and stir the mixture until smooth.
  4. Add the cheese on a low heat and melt into the mixture.
  5. Once the mixture is at your desired consistency, mix in the drained macaroni.
  6. Keep stirring until everything is mixed well and serve immediately.
