Low-fat Macaroni & Cheese

Submitted by: OCTOBERBRIDE09

Introduction

This macaroni and cheese dish is creamy and cheesy and full of flavor...you'd never know it was low fat. Definitely a good for you comfort food. Sometimes I even toss is some frozen broccoli before putting it in the oven. No leftovers from this tasty dish!

Directions

Cook macaroni according to package directions. While macaroni is cooking, place the cottage cheese in a food processor and process until smooth. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, melt the margarine. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper and garlic. Stir until smooth. Gradually add the milk and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for two minutes or until thick.

Drain the macaroni and transfer to a large bowl. Add the cheeses and the white sauce. Add broccoli or other veggies if desired. Pour into a 13x9x2 baking dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until bubbly.
