Healthier Mac and Cheese
I have been wanting to try Ellie Krieger's Mac and Cheese for years. I love how she reduces the fat of the dish by omitting the flour and butter, and ups the nutritional value by adding pureed squash. I have been skeptical as to whether or not this would taste health foodish. Much to my surprise it tasted amazing. I reduced the fat even more than Ellie's version by using fat-free milk. I also doubled the cayenne pepper, substituted more cheddar cheese for the jack, and eliminated the bread crumb and parmesan topping, opting for a sprinkling of additional cheddar instead. I will definitely make this again!
