278 calories, 8 g fat, 42 g carbs, 15 g protein
Makes 8 servings

1 box Ronzoni Smart Taste Rotini

1 bag (2 cups) Sargento shredded cheddar

2 Tbsp Land O’ Lakes light butter

2 Tbsp flour

1/4 tsp salt

1. Cook and drain pasta.

2. Over medium low heat, cook butter and flour for 30 seconds (it will be a thick paste).

3. Add milk and heat for one minute.

4. Add cheese and stir until it forms a thick, creamy sauce.

5. Pour over pasta and enjoy!

You don’t always have to eat your healthy mac and cheese plain! Here are some of my favorite toppings and mix ins: broccoli, bacon bits, sauteed lean ground meat, cubed firm tofu, oven roasted veggies (especially halved grape tomatoes), shrimp, Italian herbs like fresh basil or crushed rosemary.image
