INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR LOW FAT MAC AND CHEESE

1. Elbow Macaroni – I use this brand of low calorie macaroni. What I love about this brand of macaroni is it is very close in taste to regular elbow macaroni, but it is lower in calories, carbs and higher in fiber. I prefer this over other healthier macaroni alternatives and I highly recommend it.

2. Fat Free Milk

3. Low Fat Cheddar Cheese

4. Salt

5. Gouda Cheese

6. Chicken Bouillon Cube

7. Black Pepper

8. Paprika

9. Garlic Powder

10. White Pepper

11. Fat Free Sour Cream

12. Cornstarch

13. Mustard Powder

14. Water

HOW TO MAKE LOW FAT MAC AND CHEESE

1. Add water, salt, and chicken bouillon cubes to a pot and bring to a boil on medium heat.

2. Add in your macaroni and cook until al dente. About 9-10 minutes or according to your package instructions.

3. Once your macaroni is done, save 1/4 cup of your pasta water. Drain off the remaining pasta water and add in your sour cream. Mix until combined.

4. In a separate pot, add in your milk, pasta water and your seasonings. Let come to a simmer on medium low heat.

5. Mix your cornstarch with 2 tbsp of cold water and add it to your pot, stirring quickly. Cook until it thickens.

6. Grate your cheese and add half of it to your sauce. Mix until it has fully melted.

7. Pour your cheese sauce on top of your macaroni and mix until fully combined.

8. Add your macaroni to a baking dish and layer it with your remaining cheese.

9. Bake at 350℉ for 20-25 minutes, then finish on a low broil for 3-5 minutes.

HOW TO STORE IT

You can store your mac and cheese in the fridge for up to 4 days in an airtight container.
