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.

    As Ja-Naya Thompson's short life was celebrated, there were a lot of tears and hugs as hundreds of people paid their respects during the visitation and the funeral service. People told me they went to Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church for two reasons, to mourn the loss of five year old Ja-Naya and to show support to the parents who must now face life without their beloved child.More >>
