    TeresaS's Note:

    My grandaughter (with help from her Daddy) gave me a wonderful cookbook for Christmas called "The Whole Foods Market Cookbook". This is the recipe that my DS recommend to try 1st. It was full of fat so I have made it lower in fat. The original recipe said it served 6 in a 9X9 inch pan. There is so much of this stuff I can't imagine it fitting in that size of pan. I used a 9X13 inch pan and it was full.This is my version of this tasty dish. Still high in calories but lower in fat. Made WW friendly-7 points

      Great low-cal alternative to Mac and Cheese. It ends up tasting almost like a nacho cheese casserole... and that's awesome. Thanks for sharing.

      I made this in the dutch oven, only cooking the pasta in a second pot. I did not go low fat, this was a cheat-day treat on my low-carb diet. I followed the receipe exactly, but I used the full-fat versions of the food (hey, it was my cheat day!). Cooking in the dutch oven allowed me to do it all with one dish and the results were fantastic! Awesome! I only get one day a week to cheat and this hit the spot! I'm sure you can still cook it in a dutch oven (or other stove top-to oven dish) with the WW guidelines and still get the great results. Great one and it will be a make again!

      Fantastic!!! This is absolutely delicious, even if I didn't have jalapeno. I made this pretty much as listed, using macaroni instead of penne. I also subbed more mozzarella for the Swiss cheese which made it stringy and yummy! I will make this again for sure! Made for Best of 2012. Thanks TeresaS! :)
