Happy Wednesday, UFG'ers! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. The Mailman and I had a weekend packed with friends and family.
This weekend I made this mac and cheese for a family bbq at my sister's house. It went over very well, and the secret? Boiling the pasta in milk! It's a little work intensive, as you have to keep stirring the pasta, but the milk reduces and gets creamy and delish. Very little cheese is actually needed!
The calories in this dish are a little more than I would like for a side dish - but it is cheese, noodles and milk, after all! What you're not loosing in calories, you're loosing in the massive amount of fat and sodium that are in store bought or restaurant bought mac and cheese - so keep that in mind!
I hope you enjoy - recipe after the jump :)
