Creamy Stovetop Mac-N-Cheese

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by CatrinaRH

This is a take on Alton Brown's recipe. I experimented with the proportions because I did not like the gritty/ greasy texture from the original recipe. This recipe is absolutely creamy and delicious and lower calorie than Alton Brown's!

I had a hunch that 1 tsp of hot sauce (I used Tabasco) would be too much, but I made the recipe as directed. Since I don't like foods that are too spicy, my hunch was right. Next time I will try 1/4 tsp and adjust as needed.<br/><br/>The creaminess of the sauce was great! I used fat-free evaporated milk and salt substitute instead of salt and this turned out well. I also used a block of sharp cheddar and shredded it for this recipe.<br/><br/>Since I am trying to reduce fat and sodium, I will try this again, and may use some reduced fat cheddar with the block/shredded sharp cheddar to try to lower the fat. Great, easy & quick recipe!!
