Top Review by Amo418

This is such a great cheat recipe. It takes no time at all and definitely tricks you into thinking you're indulging. I used nonfat plain Greek yogurt and did 1/2 sharp cheddar, 1/2 pepperjack cheese. So creamy and delicious, a great base recipe for healthy mac n cheese with your favorite mix-ins.
