I tried this a few years ago and had no luck with it. Maybe it was the wrong recipe but no matter how much I rinsed it smelled fishy and tasted bad! I also love macs and cheese. I feel that if I deprive myself of it I substutute something else. I have used cauliflower to bulk up macs and cheese and lower the calorie count.

First rinse the noodles really well. Some people boil them. If you don't rinse them well they may smell like fish. Mix the following:

1/3 c shredded reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp low fat cream cheese
2 Tbsp low fat Ranch dressing
garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and sea salt to taste

If you like tuna casserole you can brown mushrooms and celery, add the above mix, and a can of tuna, heat on the stove than place in a baking dish and add the shredded cheese. It tastes really good. I used to hate those noodles until I found a few recipes.

Mac& Cheese is my weakness. I don't really try and make it less yummy, I just eat less. Today I had 2 oz of elbow pasta with 2 sticks of sargentos pepper jack cheese and 1.5 oz of chorizo al melted in. It was delicious, albeit a small portion. But it really hit the spot. Also, I LOVE Kraft Mac and cheese so I buy the box of spirals. It uses less milk and butter, makes a smaller portion and tastes like the original.

I think HungryGirl had a recipe that I tried once. It was aweful. Maybe I didn't do it right. emoticon

I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried making a lower cal mac & cheese by using shirataki noodles?
To me shirataki always seems to have a very slight "fish" taste, so not sure it would work very well - but I'm willing to give it a shot if anyone has any suggestions.
