Recipe for Low fat, Gourmet Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

Standard

I wanted to share my recipe for the most amazing low fat, homemade macaroni and cheese. Both kids and adults eat every bite and ask for seconds and thirds!

Your choice of pastas (macaroni, shells, curly pasta work great)
Fat free milk
Smoked Gouda cheese (make certain there is no “rennet” in the cheese)
Margarine
Flour
Salt and pepper to taste

If you want to make enough to serve 3-4 people, use half a box of pasta, boil as per directions.

In separate pot, melt 4 tablespoons of margarine, when bubbly add 4 tablespoons of flour and mix until smooth. Next add 2 cups of fat free milk and stir while on high heat until boiling and it has thickened, lower heat to low. Shred Gouda cheese to make one cup and add little at a time to the sauce and stir until all is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Drain pasta and add sauce to pasta in pot and mix. Serve hot.

Enjoy!
