My grandmothers recipe for Mac & Cheese...what COMFORT FOOD! My grandmothers recipe for Mac & Cheese...what COMFORT FOOD!
Number of Servings: 6


    8 oz whole wheat pasta( cooked and drained)
    2 Tbls butter
    2 Tble flour
    2 cups grated sharp cheddar
    1/2 cup grated parmesam
    2 cups skim milk
    1/2 teas dry mustard powder
    1/2 teas paprika
    1/2 teas cayenne(more or less to taste)
    salt(for pasta water)


Cook pasta in boiling salted water according to directions( I use penne, elbow, or shells) Drain and place in 8x8 casserole dish. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350.

Meanwhile in a large non stick pan- melt butter- add flour to mae paste but don't brown. Add additional spices. IMMEDIATELY add milk and stir constantly until ALMOST boiling- but don't allow to boil. Add cheeses and stir until melted and thick. Pour over pasta and cook on lowest oven rack for 20-30 minutes until set. Switch oven to broil and cook another 10 minutes until golden brown. The browned part is the best part that everyone fights over.

*** cooking in a clear glass dish allows you to see when the bottom of the dish is browned.

Makes 6 generous servings.

*** add browned ground beef of turkey....or even a can of roast beef just afte pouring cheese sauce over pasta to make an entree- meat is NOT taken into calorie count.

Number of Servings: 6
