Love to find healthier versions of something that my family already eats! Especially something as yummy as mac and cheese! This was really creamy and I love that I can sneak some whole grains into it! We used this as a side dish the night that I tried it, so I only made a half of a batch. It worked perfectly for our family of 5!
Makeover Macaroni and Cheese
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)
1 package (16 ounces) elbow macaroni - I do 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 regular
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 cups fat free milk
1 package (16 ounces) reduced fat process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine flour and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in process cheese and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese until smooth. Drain macaroni; stir into cheese sauce.
Remove from the heat; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
