Pizza and Pasta - The Macaroni and Cheese recipe on WW

Omg I just tried the mac and cheese recipe off of the site and it is delicious. I was worried because a cup was a serving and it was five points. It really filled me up though and hit the spot!


12 oz uncooked macaroni, elbow-type
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
12 oz fat-free evaporated milk
8 oz low-fat cheddar or colby cheese, shredded
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp dried bread crumbs
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 350F.

Cook pasta according to package directions without added fat or salt; drain and transfer to a large bowl. While pasta is still hot, stir in sour cream; set aside.

Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until tiny bubbles appear just around the edges (known as scalding). Reduce heat to low, add cheese and simmer until cheese melts, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, about 2 minutes; remove from heat and stir in mustard, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Add cheese mixture to pasta; mix well. Transfer to a 4-quart casserole dish.

Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese; sprinkle over pasta.

Bake until top is golden, about 30 minutes. Yields about 1 cup per serving

Your's FABULOUS...but for those following Weight Watchers it actually has a point value of 6 points per serving (serves 8). Totally worth the 6 points though.:devil:

This looks to be the same recipe but just slightly different - and it is a CORE recipe.
