Healthy Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Healthy Macaroni and Cheese
Servings: 8

This is a recipe from The Food Network's nutritionist, Elie Krieger. It is so delicious and much, MUCH better for you than regular macaroni and cheese. She used 2 oz of Monterey Jack cheese and 4 oz of cheddar, but I had better results using all cheddar, since it is more flavorful. I also use whole-wheat macaroni for more healthy grains.
