    Princess Pea's Note:

    From Chef Juan Carlos Cruz-"Calorie Commando" on Food Network- comes this delicious comfort food without the guilt. We had this tonight with grilled pork chops, seasoned green beans and spiced apples. I followed the recipe to the letter and husband, son and I thought it was delicious. Note: it is not at all soupy, so if you like your mac runny, add more milk! Also, we felt it needed salt and fresh ground pepper at the table.

      This was easy to make and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out just right, lighter than regular mac and cheese. I especially loved the panko bread crumbs on top, which gave a nice lite and crunchy taste.

      I made it early in the day and it was very eaasy to prepare. I used a mixture of fat free milk and fat free half and half. I also subbed the fontina cheese with provolone because that's what I had. I added some more half and half before baking it. The result was a nice creamy mac and cheese entree! A great flavor with the added bonus of being low fat. Thank you for sharing your recipe lovetacook!
