    Chef mariajane's Note:

    These individual Mac-and-cheese casseroles call for pungent Parmesan and extra-sharp cheddar, which means the noodles get away with less-than-usual amounts of cheese, Low-fat milk, chicken stock and olive oil keep the sauce creamy. This is a fantastic recipe from Martha Stewart!!
