Fairly Healthy Macaroni and Cheese

Makes 2 servings – 284 calories per serving

Ingredients 3/4 cup uncooked elbow macaroni 1 teaspoon olive oil 1 clove garlic, minced 1 tablespoon minced onion 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 1/3 cups skim milk 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard dash freshly ground black pepper dash cayenne pepper dash turmeric 1/2 cup shredded fat-free sharp cheddar 1/2 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese

Preparation Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 2-quart baking dish with vegetable spray.  Cook macaroni according to package directions, without added salt or fat. 

While macaroni is cooking, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium high heat; add garlic and onion, saute slightly.  While constantly stirring with a wire-whisk, add flour, slowly add milk, then salt, dry mustard, peppers, turmeric, and parsley, continuing to stir until thoroughly blended. 

Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring frequently for about 5 minutes or until milk thickens slightly.  Remove from heat and add cheeses, stirring until melted; add macaroni and stir.

Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 10-15 minutes until bubbly.  Serve immediately.
