HG Spicy EZ Mac 'n Cheesy

Submitted by: KEYLIME84
HG Spicy EZ Mac 'n Cheesy

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 1/2 oz. (about 2 cups) dry uncooked whole-wheat-blend rotini pasta (like the kind by Ronzoni)
    24 oz. (about 6 cups) frozen Green Giant Cauliflower & Cheese (or Three Cheese) Sauce
    3 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle cheese
    2 tbsp. finely chopped cilantro
    1/2 tsp. chili powder
    1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
    Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

In a large pot, prepare pasta al dente (firm) according to the instructions on the package; drain well and set aside. While pasta is cooking, place contents of the cauliflower & sauce package(s) in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 10 - 12 minutes, until sauce has melted and cauliflower is hot.

Once the bowl is cool enough to handle, remove it from the microwave and add cooked pasta. Unwrap cheese wedges and add those as well.

Mix thoroughly, ensuring that the Laughing Cow cheese is evenly distributed and the pasta and cauliflower are coated in cheese sauce. Add cilantro, chili powder, and cayenne pepper, and mix thoroughly. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
