Creamy Homemade Mac and Cheese
4 cups macaroni/mini penne – drained reserving 1 cup of pasta water
2 Tlb. Blue Bonnet Lite Margarine
2 cups shredded cheese (no fat cheddar, no fat mozzarella, no fat pepper jack)
¾ cup egg beaters
½ cup no fat sour cream
1 cup fat free ½ & ½ cream
Cayenne pepper optional
Place warm drained macaroni in bowl, add oleo. Stir until melted. In a separate bowl combine rest of the ingredients. Carefully stir into macaroni until mixture is combined. If you feel the mixture is too thin you can add 1/4 cup of pasta water. Pour into greased 13 x 9 casserole dish and bake uncovered for 30-45 min.
Note: You can make this more “gourmet” by adding real crab meat, lobster. You can use other low fat/fat free cheeses for a combination. You can add smoked paprika for a real unique flavor!
