Mac and Cheese – One Step and No Pot!


Mac and Cheese Mac and Cheese these days might be one of the most popular sides. When you go to a restaurant, there are all kinds of specialty dishes.  I have the solution for you to make Mac and Cheese at home and you don’t have to even boil the pasta–talk about step-saving. No pots to wash!!  When Wal-Mart wanted a real family favorite at an affordable price-this was it and using the Great Value brand. I always use reduced fat shredded cheese as you get the cheesy flavor with all the health benefits and not the fat. Great Value does have reduced-fat Cheddar cheese. Try whole wheat pasta one time, for me please???  I can’t wait for you to try this simple recipe-let me know what you think!
