I've never used cottage cheese or skim milk in my old version mac and cheese so I was very skeptical but it was very good and even my husband liked it.This is my new way of cooking mac and cheese.
OK, so not what I would consider traditional mac n cheese. However, it is a tasty dish that I would make again. I just can't think of it as mac n cheese.
Sometimes i add a Tbsp of pesto or sun dried tomatoes for a bit of a change. Great recipe. Ronzoni Smart Choice pasta has higher fiber and is still white which is great too.
