Healthy Mac n Cheese (4 WW points)

It’s spring break, thesis is over and done with and I want MACARONI AND CHEESE.

Let’s be real, though. During thesis week and then finals week immediately afterwards, the favorite sayings within my friend group were “Calories don’t count during thesis/finals week”. I ate a lot of pizza. And chocolate. And while I do believe that I deserved it (NO REGRETS), I’m ready to get back on track.

I found this recipe on Pinterest, so I just thought I’d share! I don’t take any credit for the original idea, but I just couldn’t keep it to myself.

The best part about this recipe is that it takes hardly any ingredients and basically no more time than making the box stuff.

You need:

  • 1 1/2 cup macaroni
  • 1 can low-fat cheese soup
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat (I used skim) milk
  • 1/2 can of water

Step 1: Boil your macaroni per the instructions on the box.

Step 2: Drain, then add back into the pot.

Step 3: Add you cheese soup, milk, and water.

Step 4: Simmer until sauce is reduced and thick.

Serve, salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!
