This version is somewhat lower in fat than many macaroni & cheese recipes, but still just as tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a small skillet. Add bread crumbs; cook and stir until toasted, about 3 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In medium saucepan, melt remaining butter over low heat. Add flour and cook, stirring, constantly, for 1 minute. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly. Cook until thickened, stirring occasionally. Stir in salt & pepper and remove pan from heat. Add cheese and stir until melted.
  4. Stir macaroni into cheese sauce. Spoon onto serving plates, sprinkle with toasted bread crumbs, and serve.
  5. You can also pour this into a casserole dish, top with the breadcrumbs, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I always prefer baked macaroni and cheese!
