    MsSally's Note:

    We love mac and cheese, but not all of the fat and calories, so I've been working on a lighter version and this is what I came up with. My DD loves this and she's picky about her mac and cheese.

      Made for Zaar Stars. We love mac & cheese, especially the baked kind, but I rarely make it because it is so loaded with fat - but this isn't and it tastes just like the full fat kind. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting this MsSally!

      MMMMmmm... yum. I was making this for the kids at our St. Patrick's Day Party (it's the "pot of gold") and had a hard time keeping my fork out of it (and that was before it baked!). I used an entire bag of medium shells instead of the elbows (for some reason my four year old doesn't "do" mac and cheese elbows), and the ratio was perfect. I sprinkled only about 1/2 cup mozzarella on top of the mac and cheese before baking too (because the four year old also has a thing against shredded yellow cheese?!?!) and it was perfect for us. Thanks for sharing.
