Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Loved it! After reading reviews I swapped 1 c skim milk for 1/2 c low fat mozzarella. I drained my tomatoes so I didn't end up with much sauce. I added an extra Tbsp of Frank's Red Hot because my husband and I like our foods a little spicier. Even my husband said I should make it again! Submitted by:

I'm not sure I follow the measurements for the pasta. Isn't 2 cups of dry elbow macaroni about 8oz, not 4oz like the nutrition information says? Submitted by:

I agree the recipe comes out a more like buffalo chicken macaroni with cheese as a topping. I wished I read the idea of using only 1 cup of milk and adding in some cheese with the saved calories. I will do that next time! Submitted by:

I took on board the comments bel - drained the tomatoes and used 1 cup of milk. Increase the cheese flavor by choosing a reduced fat option - more for the same calories. You can also cut out the butter and use an oil spray. It works well too with extra cauliflower. Submitted by:

We really liked this. Because of the comments that it was runny, I only used 1 cup of skim milk and with the calories saved I added 1/3 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese. It was not runny at all and creamy. This felt like real comfort food. Submitted by:

Yum, yum! I did add some lowfat cheddar cheese as a last step. I was more generous with all the veggies (I used the whole can of tomatoes, drained), only used one cup of milk since I added cheese and topped with parsley/green onions. I served it with a healthy salad. It looked just like the picture. Submitted by:

Great!! Added a little more buffalo sauce and used some reduced-fat cheddar instead of blue cheese since my family does not like it! Lots of flavor, will def make again! Submitted by:

This was very good but agree with others that it needs some cheese. For the leftovers I added about half a cup of low fat Mexican cheese blend and a quarter cup of feta...yummy! Even my somewhat picky 13 year old daughter liked it. Will make it again for sure! Submitted by:

I used people's comments to adjust the recipe. It just didn't sound at ALL like M&C. I used half whole milk and half 1%. At the last minute, I caved and added 2 ounces Cabot Habanero cheddar to the sauce. Divided the casserole into 6 servings. Only 282 calories and very satisfying. Submitted by:

Green onions, parsely and celery are mention in "Tips". Use 1/4 cup gorgonzola instead of bleu cheese for stronger chesse flavor. Buffalo sauce usually refers to Frank's Hot Sauce - no butter or fat content would be much higher. Submitted by:

There are several brands of bottled Buffalo Sauce...all with different calorie, nutritional counts. Just read the labels, some are more Spark Friendly. Submitted by:
