The following recipe for Macaroni Cheese I actually got from their website after craving pasta. I’m sometimes sceptical about low fat food, having no flavour etc but then I’m basing that on those ready-made meals that really taste like plastic. This macaroni cheese was truly delish and delivered so much flavour, that I would never have guessed that it was low fat and only 7 points per serving. Hubby enjoyed this pasta with me and he too said how nice it was and that he would never have guessed it was a WW recipe.
200g pasta, uncooked, (macaroni)
225ml skimmed milk
2 level tablespoon flour
1 level tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground, black
100g cheddar cheese
3 tablespoon parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4/350°F/175°C. Cook macaroni according to package instructions. Drain and keep warm.
In a large non-stick saucepan, combine milk, flour, mustard, salt and pepper. Cook, whisking constantly, until sauce thickens and comes to a boil, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cheddar in batches, stirring until cheese is melted after each addition before adding more. Stir in macaroni.
Transfer mixture to a shallow 1-quart casserole dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Increase oven temperature to grill and cook for 3 minutes more. Cool slightly before serving.
