Mac & Cheese Casserole

Submitted by: 1TRULYBLESSED

Introduction

I used a baked mac & cheese recipe from SP as a base for this recipe, adding Canadian bacon and chopped broccoli to make a meal of it. The addition of chopped onion gives it just a bit more "zing".

Ingredients

    12 oz uncooked macaroni, elbow-type
    1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
    12 oz fat-free evaporated milk
    8 oz low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
    5 slices Canadian bacon
    1 c. chopped broccoli, cooked
    1 tbsp. red onion, chopped
    1 tsp Dijon mustard
    1/4 tsp table salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
    2 Tbsp dried bread crumbs
    2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 3-quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Cook macaroni according to package directions, omitting any added fat or salt; drain and transfer to a large bowl. While pasta is still hot, stir in sour cream, Canadian bacon and broccoli; set aside.

Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until tiny bubbles appear just around the edges. Reduce heat to low, add cheese, and simmer until cheese melts, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, about 2 minutes; remove from heat and stir in mustard, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add cheese mixture to pasta; mix well. Transfer to prepared casserole dish. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan; sprinkle over pasta. Cover and bake until top is golden, about 30-40 minutes, removing cover for last 5-10 minutes.
