Mac and Cheese Remake

Mac and Cheese Remake

Introduction

Adapted from a recipe I saw in a magazine. I have gone two steps further to make it even healthier. Combining dry curd with regular cottage cheese cuts the sodium down quite a bit too.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    8 oz (dry weight) wholewheat elbow macaroni
    1 cup dry curd cottage cheese (if available, otherwise just use low fat cottage cheese)
    1 cup low fat cottage cheese
    1/2 can pumpkin
    3/4 cup sharp white cheddar, grated
    2 tbsp whole wheat breadcrumbs (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook pasta in boiling water. Meanwhile place cottage cheese and pumpkin in blender and puree. You may find that a food processor works better. You may need to stop and spoon it around a few times until the mixture becomes creamy.
When pasta is cooked, drain and combine with all remaining ingredients and top with optional breadcrumbs. Place in a casserole dish and bake for approx 15 minutes.
