      This is one of the best mac and cheeses I have ever had! And low-fat!!! I love the tanginess of the buttermilk and goat cheese. This one will be made again! Made for Fall 2008 PAC.

      This turned out yummy. My family didn't even guess it was low-fat so that is always a plus! Delish! Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
