On a cold day like today, there is nothing better than a hearty and hot meal. One of my favorites is Mac and Cheese. Allrecipies has taken a classic dish and turned it into a yummy low fat one. If you would like to make a meal out of it, try adding brocolli and chicken cubes.
1 cup fat-free milk
1 1/4 cups shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
2/3 cup fat-free cottage cheese
pepper to taste
2 1/2 cups cooked elbow macaroni
1 tablespoon grated onion
In a blender or food processor, combine the milk, cheeses and pepper. Cover and process until creamy. Pour into a bowl; stir in macaroni and onion. Transfer to a 1-1/2-qt. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 1 hour or until heated through.
