Three Cheese Mac and Cheese Lite (Yes Lite)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by MsSally

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!
