Ingredients

    • 3/4 cup skim milk
    • 3/4 cup nonfat sour cream
    • 3 Tbsp trans fat free margarine, melted
    • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
    • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
    • 2 cups (8 oz) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese

    • 1/4 tsp pepper
    • 4 cups cooked multigrain elbow macaroni (about 2 cups uncooked)
    • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
    • 1/4 tsp paprika

Preparation

    • Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly coat a 2-quart casserole dish or 6 (7-oz) ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.
    • In a saucepan, combine milk, sour cream, margarine, mustard, mozzarella, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until cheese is melted and a sauce forms.
    • In a large bowl, combine cooked macaroni and cheese sauce. Stir gently to combine.
    • Pour macaroni into prepared casserole or ramekins.
    • In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and paprika. Sprinkle mixture over macaroni mixture. Cover and bake for 30 minutes in casserole or 5 minutes in ramekins.
