Low Fat Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Just plain healthy recipe...

A family favorite recipe made healthy and low fat! This version of low fat macaroni and cheese is made with non-fat Cheddar cheese and skim milk. Baked in the oven, it turns out creamy and light. You could also substitute reduced-fat cheese for the non-fat if desired or preferred.

Recipe Ingredients

8 ounces low carb dry macaroni
2 cups skim or non-fat milk
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 cups non-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
Salt to taste (optional)

Recipe Directions

Meal with low fat macaroni and cheese side dish

Cook macaroni per package instructions, until just tender... al dente. Drain, rinse and set aside.

Mix together 1/2 cup of the milk along with flour, pepper and Worcestershire sauce until smooth.

Into a medium or large saucepan, add remaining 1-1/2 cup milk and bring to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring constantly to avoid sticking.

Add the flour to the heated milk and cook, while continuing to stir, for 1-2 minutes. This will be the thickening sauce for the cheese.

Now add 1-1/2 cup of cheese to the milk and stir until the cheese is melted. Remove from heat and stir in the macaroni until combined well.

Spread macaroni into a greased (with your choice of cooking spray), casserole dish.

Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and let set for 5 minutes.
