Low Fat Macaroni And Cheese

Marley's picture
This low fat macaroni and cheese is a cooked and oven baked recipe for mac and cheese. I like to flavor mine with 3 different cheese types. You can choose your favorites. Flavored with added onions and onion powder, the low fat macaroni and cheese is finished in the oven and is baked to a brown top.
