Introduction

This casserole is SO much better than the instant, packaged kind! Plus, you can control the ingredients - this version uses regular milk and cheese, but you can substitute low-fat versions.

    i made a few changes to this recipe - used 1% milk and sifted in flour to make a white sauce without butter. added garlic powder, paprika and dijon mustard to sauce, stirred in fat free cream cheese, swiss, cheddar, monterrey jack. topped with cheddar instead of bread crumbs. yummy. - 10/25/09

    Just like my husband's!! but you have to note this...1/4 serving is HUGE! Add some peas as a side, mix it in with half portion and you are good to go!! - 5/17/10

    I made this last night. Instead of the corn flakes, I used organic whole grain flakes and it not only gave it great nutty flavor, but also boosted the fiber. - 9/3/09

    I will never eat mac n cheese from a box again! This recipe was super even though I didn't end up baking it. I also added broccoli and carrots in the boiling water with the mac to add a little something extra. - 10/25/08

    Excellent! Topped with parmesan instead of corn flakes. Used fat free milk instead of 2%. - 3/9/13
