Recipe Ingredients for Moosewood Low Fat Macaroni & Cheese

1 1/2 c 1% cottage cheese
1 1/2 c skim milk or buttermilk
1 T mustard
1 pinch of cayenne (or more)
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground black pepper
1/4 c grated onions
1 c grated cheddar cheese (4 oz.), sharp
1/2 lb. uncooked elbow macaroni (or other tubular pasta)
2 T finely grated Parmesan cheese, or Pecorino
1/4 c bread crumbs

Recipe Directions for Moosewood Low Fat Macaroni & Cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Prepare square baking pan with a light spray of oil.

  2. In a blender, combine cottage cheese, milk, mustard, cayenne, nutmeg, salt and pepper and puree until smooth. In a large bowl (actually, I did this right in the baking dish), combine pureed mixture with the onions, cheddar and uncooked macaroni. Stir well. Pour macaroni and cheese mixture into the baking pan. Combine the grated Pecoino or Parmesan and bread crumbs and sprinkle over top.

  3. Bake about 45 minutes, until topping is browned and the center is firm.
