LOOKING for: Low Fat Mac & Cheese

taraleeDecember 16, 2004

Woe is me...I'm on a low fat diet, due to high cholesterol, and have been hunting for a _good_ low fat Mac & Cheese recipe. The ones I've found so far online have been pretty nasty. Anyone have one that they've found to be good?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

This is a weightwatchers recipe, I haven't tried it yet but 2 of my friends have and really like it.

macaroni and cheese
Prep Time : 18 min
Cook Time : 40 min
Level of Difficulty : Easy
Was : 9 POINTS

main meals : Our rich, creamy macaroni and cheese explodes with flavor for two-thirds of the dish's usual POINTS.
12 oz uncooked macaroni, elbow-type
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
12 oz fat-free evaporated milk
8 oz low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp dried bread crumbs
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
2. Cook pasta according to package directions without added fat or salt; drain and transfer to a large bowl. While pasta is still hot, stir in sour cream; set aside.
3. Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until tiny bubbles appear just around the edges (known as scalding). Reduce heat to low, add cheese and simmer until cheese melts, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, about 2 minutes; remove from heat and stir in mustard, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
4. Add cheese mixture to pasta; mix well. Transfer to a 4-quart casserole dish.
5. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese; sprinkle over pasta.
6. Bake until top is golden, about 30 minutes. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
Chef Tips
We renovated Macaroni and Cheese by:
 Using fat-free sour cream instead of regular.
 Swapping evaporated fat-free milk for regular milk.
 Opting for reduced-fat cheddar cheese instead of the full-fat variety.
