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.

Ingredients

    8 oz (dry weight) wholewheat elbow macaroni
    1 cup dry curd cottage cheese (if available, otherwise just use low fat cottage cheese)

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.
