Yummy. I added 2 cups of mixed veggies, and 5 oz of chicken breast and was able to get 7 1-cup servings @ 193 calories. Filling. Submitted by:

Some great low cal add ins for mac and cheese - grated carrots, red pepper, onion, dijon mustard, zucchini, low fat cottage cheese, spinach or arugula -- you can easily double your portion be more filled up. Don't forget whole wheat pasta! Submitted by:

I wish people would write the correct nutritional value. I made this 4 dinner and followed the recipe, This is the actual breakdown: Cal: 346.Carbs 38.Fat 12.Protein 21/serving. It was good, but not fantastic. I think the amount of cheese was over powering. I’d recommend using 4oz not 8oz. Submitted by:

Can anything be done to reduce the sodium content? I love Mac and Cheese, but 940mg sodium is a lot. Submitted by:
