Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Well I was really happy with the recipe until I saw the comments below regarding the nutritional info being off. I am preparing for a bodybuilding comp and I have to count my macros...now they are way off for the day. I can't afford that. Submitted by:

Are cals calculated for COOKED macaroni? The macaroni alone comes to the total calorie estimate for the dish acc to SP calculator! I plan to make it,with cauliflower and brocoli and adjusted cals!! And extra cheese. Cant get low fat cheese here at a price I am prepared to pay, so shall adapt!

I made this tonight (but didn't have the mustard) I thought it was really good - hubby thought it was dry. Wish I had known the calorie count was off before I made it. Submitted by:

I liked this, I would make it again. I didn't have any evaporated milk, so I just used nonfat milk and a couple big scoops of lowfat cream cheese- which worked great- I didn't have any problems with it not being creamy enough. Used seasoned panko break crumbs on top, which added some extra flavor. Submitted by:

Calories are more like 320. Add 1/2 cup no fat cream cheese, use low fat ritz crackers for topping and cook covered Submitted by:

Awful! This is by far the worst macaroni and cheese recipe I had ever followed. I ended up having to scrap it instead of serving it. The sauce was one big grainy mess. Your better off using regular fat free milk and 1 tablespoon light margarine or butter instead of the evapomilk. Submitted by:

Calories are off, flavor is kind of bland, the mustard didn't go well with it and it was all together a big disappointment. Submitted by:

I put in half the mustard, and wanted it creamier after reading the reviews, so I added in 1 c of low-fat cottage cheese, which melted while baking. Excellent!! Submitted by:

The calorie and carbohydrate counts in this recipe are way off. Add an additional 100 calories worth of carbs to the nutrition facts of this recipe if you need to watch your carb intake. The fact that this recipe is way off in and has not been corrected by the poster for years earns it only 1 star. Submitted by:

I tried this for dinner. Substituted sour cream with Miracle whip fat free and soy cheese shreds. Dried mustard really thickens cheese sauce. I cut the recipe by 2/3 so only used 4 oz macaroni. Tangy, cheesy treat! My calculator came at 172 cal for two servings. Submitted by:

we really enjoyed this, I prefer a more cheesy flavour but i'm not sure that can be achieved without bucket loads more cheese involved as I'm not sure if there is such a thing as low fat vintage cheese.
otherwise. really nice.

This was a great alternative to the high calorie version. I used the strongest flavored low fat cheese I could find and it was great. Submitted by:

Yum! Based on other reviews, I added a tbsp fat free cream cheese and an extra tbsp fat free sour cream. I also used whole wheat macaroni and whole wheat Italian style bread crumbs. I sprayed no cal butter spray over the crumbs and loosely covered with tinfoil to bake. Kept it moist and creamy Submitted by:

I've used this recipe before and while it doesn't compare to full fat bad for you mac & cheese, if you are on a low fat diet it is a great compromise. It is pretty easy to play with. Yes, low fat cheese doesn't melt well and definately cover it or stir midway to keep it from drying out. Submitted by:

This was really good! Although I left out the dijon mustard to save on cals! I added a little bit more sour cream and some fat free cream cheese to make it creamier. Not dry at all. For left overs the next day I added chopped turkey bacon! Yummy! Thanks for a great recipe! Submitted by:

Nutrional info off... yes - check the ingredients details. It says 1.5 cups elbow macaroni. Cooked or not, that doesn't equal 12 oz uncooked! That's a lot of carb... Submitted by:

Good flavor, lacked creaminess. I think some recipes aren't meant to be low-fat - including mac & cheese, the ultimate comfort food! Submitted by:

It was good, not great. I couldn't get the low-fat cheese to melt into the milk. Even after 8-10 minutes, it just remained a soft glob of cheese, so it wouldn't mix well with the pasta. The flavor was good, but since the cheese wouldn't cooperate, I probably won't make it again. Submitted by:

I don't get the caloric calculations either. I'm Mac and cheese lover and I found this to be only passable. Didn't eat the entire portion since I didn't feel the calories were worth it. Submitted by:

I know I was suppose to keep it low in fat and I did, except I did add some smoked gouda cheese. Then tomatoes on top... Thank you for reminding me to use evaporated milk (Low fat even). I was forget that. Submitted by:
