I am a mac and cheese freak. The only low fat macaroni and cheese I like is the processed stuff in a microwaveable cup. Anyone know of a good recipe that doesn't call for a ton of ingredients??

there's a great recipe on the WW website, easy, VERY tasty (husband loves it).

Even easier, Barilla Plus pasta, Kraft 2% cheddar, 1 tbsp (per serving) of lite margarine, few tablespoons of fat free 1/2 and 1/2, tsp of dijon mustard. Cook the pasta, drain it, return to pot, mix in the other ingredients, throw a few breadcrumbs on top, bake.
