This potentially life-changing mac & cheese is worth the 15 minutes by the stove. You won't believe how rich and creamy it is with NO butter, NO cream, and NO Velveeta in the recipe. (Boil noodles in milk!)
Panera Mac And Cheese 2 cups dried pasta 2 1/2 cups skim milk** 1 cup loosely packed cheddar cheese, shredded by hand 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp dijon mustard, can omit and substitute nutmeg instead (for either, start with a little and add more to taste) 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
Zero points: Cauliflower popcorn (Break a head of cauliflower into popcornlike, bite-size florets, then spread them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spray the cauliflower lightly with butter-flavor cooking spray, then sprinkle lightly with turmeric, freshly ground pepper, and sea salt. Bake 20 to 30 minutes at 425 degrees F or until the cauliflower is slightly browned.) (1 cup = 29 cal., 5 g carb., 0 g fat, 2 g pro.)
Sausage and Cream Cheese Biscuit Bites - so GOOD! I'm totally addicted to these things! Sausage, cream cheese, Worcestershire, cheddar cheese baked in biscuits. Can make the sausage mixture ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake. Great for tailgating, breakfast and parties! Everyone loves this recipe!
