Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Potato and Brie Mac & Cheese

8 ounces whole wheat pasta
1 cup sweet potato
1 cup skim milk
1 cup low fat cheddar cheese
1/2 cup brie cheese
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Sweet Potato and Brie Mac & Cheese

  1. Cook pasta, drain.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk together and heat sweet potato puree and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat until just starting to simmer.

  3. Reduce stove heat to low. Whisk in cheeses until fully melted.

  4. Stir in nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Stir drained pasta into the sweet potato-cheese sauce and mix until thoroughly combined.

  6. At this point, the mac & cheese might appear a bit soupy. If this is the case, let the mixture sit off of the heat for a few minutes. The cheese sauce will firm up as it slightly cools.

  7. Serve with an extra dusting of nutmeg, if desired.
