FAT FREE MACARONI CHEESE

Macaroni Cheese is an ALL TIME favourite.. the flavor of this recipe depends on the cheese you use…it could be an array of mixed cheeses or just one type. The Americans usually add the orange cheddar cheese and the english the white cheddar. I love cheddar but this time i made it with grated parmesan cheese and WITHOUT ANY OIL OR BUTTER
It was delicious and from now on i shall be making it this way!!
INGREDIENTS:
2 cups of boiled macaroni of your choice( i used elbow macaroni)
1 cup of fat free milk
2 heaped tablespoons of white flour
1 cup of cheese of your choice grated, i used grated parmesan (the ready made one from the supermarket….i dont think its authentic italian parmesan!!!)
salt and pepper to taste( please be careful with adding salt as cheese is salty
METHOD:
Put 3/4 cup of milk to boil and lower the heat. Mix the white flour with the rest of the 1/4 cup milk till there are no lumps. Remove the boiling milk from the heat and slowly stir in the milk and flour mixture making sure there are no lumps. Put it back on the heat and cook slowly stirring all the time till the sauce thickens. Remove from heat totally and add the pepper. Add the cheese and the pasta and mix well. Check if you need to add salt. Pour into an oven proof dish and bake in a hot oven 200 degrees till the mixture is bubbly and browned
PLEASE NOTE: The sharper the cheese the less you need to add , in case it has a strong flavor. Mature cheese is also more salty
You can add herbs but for the true “MAC N CHEESE” recipe there are no herbs added
You can also add full fat milk or even a dash of cream to make it richer
If you see the mixture is too dry and you like it a bit runny just increase the quantity of milk
ITS DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!

    The only thing about fat free cheeses is a lot of them are processed…personally I’d do half and half. You got to have a bit of fat in mac and cheese…it’s what makes it so yummy!
