Lower Fat Baked Mac and Cheese

Lower Fat Baked Mac and Cheese created by Lalaloula

This is the result of me playing with my MIL's baked mac and cheese recipe. IMHO it captures the flavor and texture of the original recipe without leaving a greasy feeling in the mouth. Hope you enjoy it!

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 and coat an 8x8 pan with cooking spray.
  • Cook pasta according to box directions until just done. Drain briefly, then return pasta to the cooking pot (it should still be warm).
  • Add Smart Balance, Velveeta, milk, and 1/2 c cheddar cheese and stir until the cheeses melt. You may need to put the pan back on a burner for this.
  • Pour pasta mixture into greased pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Sprinkle remaining 1/4 c cheese on top and bake another 5-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and the top is as crunchy as you like it :).

    Husband, who is pretty fussy about his mac 'n cheese loved this recipe and did not miss the higher fat cheese and milk! I did put a few panko bread crumbs on top to add a bit of a crunch. YUM! Thanks so much for the recipe smellyvegetarian!

    This was a good version of baked Mac 'n Cheese. I followed the recipe exactly and am pleased with how easy and quick this was. Hubby thinks it needed salt...maybe just a tad imho. <br/><br/>I did end up doubling the recipe to feed our family of 6 with 1/4 left for tomorrow. Thanks so much!

    This was really good and easy to make. I doubled the recipe and used 2% milk instead of skim as that is what I buy. I followed the rest of the recipe other then I cut the salt in half. I think hubby was a bit upset with me as he made steaks and I ate more of the mac and cheese and left some of my steak. I even ate this for breakfast the next morning. It was just as good cold! Made for Spring PAC 2010.
