Lighten Up: Mac and Cheese

Lighten up that classic mac and cheese recipe, by dialing down the calories, and turning up nutrition. Start with a whole-grain pasta. Gluten-free quinoa pasta has double the fiber and half the sugar, plus iron and important B vitamins. It's light in color, so even kids won't notice the swap. 

For the cheese mixture, use skim milk, grated cheddar and butternut squash puree. Squash boosts the vitamin A content of this recipe and makes it thick and creamy without having to add white flour. Delicious and nutritious.
