This is about as low fat & calories as you can make Mac & Cheese and still taste darn good. I cut the recipe in half with no problems.

This recipe was made on 7/3/13 for the " Cheese Festival " portion of the " Summer Vacation Tour " in the Games forum.Since there was just two of us,the recipe was cut in half.Also I didn't use reduced fat ingredients.After making everything on the stove, and baked it for a few minutes in the oven to give it a little bit of a crusty top.It was a very easy recipe to make. My SO and I really enjoyed the taste. If your looking for a very good " Comfort Food "side dish,this is it. :)
