This rich, creamy mac and cheese was a shoo-in for this week's "Family-Friendly" recipe series.

Ingredients

 

 

12 oz. whole wheat elbow macaroni

1/2 cup(s) fat-free sour cream   

 

12 oz. fat-free evaporated milk   

 

8 oz. low-fat cheddar or colby cheese   

 

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   

 

  

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.

 

  • 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.
