    That actually does NOT taste low fat, true! Not the way I USED to do! No butter or oil too! Hope you will agree and do a review!

      This was quite good, although I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I used plain soy milk (which will make it creamier), 2 cups shredded cheese and added 2 Tbsp. low fat margarine.

      uummmm. Okay, i pretty much made it to the recipe and I didnt really like it...BUT i used whole wheat pasta and maybe that affected the taste. Overall, I pretty much wont be making again.

      It istn't creamy and smooth like higher-fat macaroni and cheese, but considering how lowfat it is, it's pretty darn good. I used lowfat cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. I used my immersion blender to blend the flour and milk together, since without butter, the two just don't combine well. I did add the parsley mentioned in step nine and some extra Dijon. Great if you're dieting and crave mac & cheese! Thanx for posting.
