My macaroni and cheese recipe could qualify as a low calorie foods contender at only 480 to 610 calories per cup.
Mac and cheese gets a bad rap because many versions either use pretend cheese or contain rivers of fat. Not so with this recipe given to me by a client from Edina, Minnesota.
I've been using it for twenty years. My all time favorite mac and cheese and one of the all time fast, good and easy dinner recipes.
LOW CALORIE FOODS TIP -- To reduce calories and fat, use low fat, 2% milk and less cheese. No- or low fat cheese is not an acceptable alternative, taste wise.
