Comfy Companion!

As promised....we had mac and cheese with our BBQ meatballs...

OH if I had a dollar for all the different macaroni and cheese recipes out there....I'd be a millionaire! Alas, since I do not have copyrights on any of I sit blogging in my middle income home instead of my personal assistant blogging for me on a beach in FIJI! Sigh.

But I did make a lower fat mac and's how I did it:

Lower Fat Macaroni and Cheese

2 Tbsp 50/50 smart balance butter
1/4 cup flour
2-1/2 cups of lowfat milk or FF evaporated milk
1 cup 2% milkfat cheddar cheese
1/2 package Fat Free Cheese slices
1 box pasta
French's Onion Rings

Melt your smart balance and add flour to form a roux....wait until you smell the nuttiness of the flour before you add the milk. Stir until thickened.

Add cheeses. Stir until melted. Add pasta.

OMG...I just wanted to take a fork and dig in right then....

Put into casserole dish coated with nonstick spray and bake @ 375 for 20 or until bubbly.

Take out of oven and add onion rings....until browned....

You will eat this and can't get over the fact it's figure friendly!
