HG's Too-EZ Mac 'n Cheese

Please Cheese Me
Our mac 'n cheese doesn't need to be a fluorescent shade of orange to stand up to the competition. It tastes AMAZING, and it's as simple as A-B-C, 1-2-3, Do-Re-Mi. (P.S. The cheesy cauliflower works perfectly here -- trust us!)

24 oz. (about 6 cups) frozen Green Giant Broccoli & Cheese Sauce or Cauliflower & Cheese Sauce
4 1/2 oz. (about 1 3/4 cups) uncooked high-fiber rotini pasta
3 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese
Optional seasonings: salt and black pepper

Place veggies & cheese sauce in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 10 - 12 minutes, until sauce has melted and veggies are hot.

In medium-large pot, cook pasta per package instructions, about 8 minutes. Drain pasta and stir into the veggies & cheese sauce.

Add cheese wedges, breaking them into pieces. Mix thoroughly, until cheese has melted and is well mixed. Enjoy!

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner

We grew up eating that mac & cheese from the infamous blue box. Who didn't?! Truth be told, that stuff tastes good. You make it with butter and milk, so of course it's gonna taste great. But adding fatty ingredients to boxed pasta with cheese powder is certainly NOT the only way to get super-delicious cheesy macaroni. We assure you. This recipe is proof! It's JUST as quick 'n easy as the Kraft version, but it's WAY lower in fat and calories. Plus, it has actual nutritional value. (It's true!) You get all the cheesy noodley goodness and way more bang for your calorie buck with ours. So head to the kitchen and whip up a batch of our vegged out, cheesylicious pasta ASAP. Then email in and let us know how you like it. Special thanks go out to our BFF The Laughing Cow, without whom this recipe would not be possible. WE LOVE YOU, COW!!!
