Introduction

I found an absolutely scrumptious looking Mac and Cheese recipe in a cookbook that I took and made into a low fat, high protein version made with whole grain pasta.

My husband said it was excellant before I told him what was in it, then was amazed at it being actually healthy for him!

Original recipe:485 calories, 29 g fat
My version: 307 calories, 9.7 g fat, 16.7 protein

served with a side of sauteed kale and topped with a few carmelized onions for delicious meal!
