Recipe Wednesday: Weight Watchers Macaroni & Cheese

No comments
When I started Weight Watchers I knew I needed to find recipes for my favorite meals. I couldn't go without certain things and one of those things was macaroni and cheese. Sometimes I just get an intense craving for cheesy goodness and it cannot be stopped.

I searched Pinterest for a low point recipe as well as one that was easy to make. I love to cook, I love to bake but I hate when things are too complicated.

When I discovered this recipe, I knew that it would be good. It's only 4 points for 1 cup and 1 cup is more than enough. Also, 4 points is pretty decent for a lunch or dinner.

I have to say, this recipe is one of my favorite Weight Watchers recipes I've found. It doesn't taste like 'diet' food and I don't feel like I've really limited myself.



*I altered the recipe just a bit to my liking.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of macaroni
    • I usually use more than this but do whatever your heart desires!
  • 1 can low fat-cheese soup
  • 1/2 can of water
  • 3/4 cup of low-fat milk
    • I use Almond milk
  • Handful of reduced fat shredded cheese
  • Handful of breadcrumbs





Steps
  • Cook the macaroni to your liking
  • Drain and return the pasta to the warm pot
  • Add the cheese soup, the water, and milk to the pot and mix well
  • Bring the mixture to a boil
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Transfer pasta mixture to a greased, medium casserole dish 
  • Add shredded cheese and breadcrumbs on top of pasta mixture
  • Cook for 1-2 hours (or until just brown enough to your liking)
  • Enjoy! 


I like my mac & cheese extra crispy on top and a little burnt but you cook it however you like!

And remember, it's only 4 points per cup.

Happy eating!
