Introduction

Although this dish is lower in fat due to the skim milk and reduced-fat cheese, you’ll love it so much, you may never resort to the fluorescent-orange boxed stuff again Although this dish is lower in fat due to the skim milk and reduced-fat cheese, you’ll love it so much, you may never resort to the fluorescent-orange boxed stuff again

Ingredients

    16 oz uncooked elbow macaroni (or whole-wheat pasta for an added 3.5 g fiber per serving)
    3 tbsp all-purpose flour
    2 cups skim milk
    1 tbsp light butter (stick or tub)
    8 oz reduced-fat (33 percent) shredded cheddar
    3 oz Velveeta Light cheese, cut into thin strips
    1/8 tsp black pepper
    3 tbsp seasoned breadcrumbs

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. Boil macaroni until tender but firm. While pasta cooks, whisk together flour and 1/2 cup milk in a small bowl. Pour remaining 1 1/2 cups milk into a large saucepan and heat over low. Once milk is slightly warmed, turn heat to medium-low and add flour and milk mixture, stirring constantly until thick. Reduce heat slightly and add butter, cheeses and pepper. Cook until smooth, about 5 minutes. Drain macaroni, then combine with cheese mixture, stirring thoroughly. Pour into a 13" x 9" baking dish. Sprinkle breadcrumbs lightly and evenly on top and bake 30 to 35 minutes. Serve immediately.
