This is a "healthy" Mac and Cheese recipe from Dr. Phil. I haven't actually tried it yet---it is from my stack of recipes to try--but it looks tasty and the other recipes I have tried of his have been pretty good.
Mac and Cheese
2 C skim milk
1 T whole-wheat flour
6 oz shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese
1 ½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp sweet paprika
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp grated nutmeg
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
8 canned artichoke hearts, packed in water, drained, rinsed and roughly chopped 3 C cooked whole-wheat elbow macaroni
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 1 ½ quart high-sided, round baking dish with Pam and set aside.
Heat milk in large saucepan set over medium-low heat. When small bubbles appear around the edge of the pan, whisk in the whole-wheat flour.C ontinue cooking and whisking until thickened, about 20 seconds. Stir in cheese and cook, stirring until it melts and the mixture is smooth.
Stir in the onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt, nutmeg, and pepper; then stir in the artichoke hears and macaroni. Cook just until heated through, about 30 seconds.
Mound the mixture into the prepared baking dish and press down lightly to compact. Bake until bubbling and lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
