Mac And Cheese


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I absolutely love macaroni and cheese, but there's two big problems. 1)I cook just for myself, so making a whole box makes no sense for me. 2)it's usually a huge fat and calorie bomb.

One day, I was experimenting, and I found a solution. Cook 1/2 cup of whole wheat macaroni. Drain the pasta, and return it to the pot. Take one slice of Kraft 2% milk sharp cheddar cheese, put it on the pasta, and stir til melted. It makes delicious mac and cheese with 260 calories and 4.5 grams of fat!

To round out the meal, you could add some chicken breast, lean ham, or turkey sausage plus a big side of veggies. This totally satisfies my craving and also allows me to make only what I need, intead of a whole box!
