Recipe Ingredients for Macaroni and cheese

12 oz. uncooked macaroni, elbow type
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
12 oz. fat-free evaporated milk
8 oz. low-fat cheddar cheese
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp. dried bread crumbs

Recipe Directions for Macaroni and cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

  2. Cook pasta according to package directions without added fat or salt; drain and transfer to a large bowl. While pasta is still hot, stir in sour cream; set aside.

  3. Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until tiny bubbles appear just around the edges (known as scalding). Reduce heat to low, add cheese and simmer until cheese melts, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, about 2 minutes; remove from heat and stir in mustard, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

  4. Add cheese mixture to pasta; mix well. Transfer to a 4-quart casserole dish.

  5. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese; sprinkle over pasta.

  6. Bake until top is golden, about 30 minutes. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
