Baked Mac & Cheese

I first made this while spending part of the winter in Florida. We were tempted by the gooey mac & cheese in the Whole Foods prepared food section, but I convinced my husband that I can make the same dish at home, using ingredients I felt comfortable eating.


I used the recipe here as a base but made some substitutions.

I eliminated the butter.
I use 1% milk
For cheese I combine low fat jalapeno muenster, low fat sharp cheddar, and low fat dill havarti.

The result is crispy on top and gooey in the middle.
