Skinny Easy Mac
1 cup (dry) high fiber elbow macaroni noodles
1 cup water
A pinch salt
¼ cup almond milk
¼ cup low fat cottage cheese
6 tablespoon low-fat (or 2%) shredded cheddar cheese
A pinch of pepper and mustard powder, to taste
Combine the pasta noodles, water, and salt in a large microwave safe bowl.
Microwave for 6 minutes total, but taking the bowl out and stirring every 2 minutes.
Water should be almost completely absorbed at this point and pasta would be al dente.
Add 2 tablespoon of the cheddar cheese, the milk, cottage cheese, pepper and mustard
Stir well, and microwave another 2 minutes, or until cheese and cottage cheese are melted.
Stir once more after removing from microwave.
Add the additional 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese.
Stir well until everything is combined.
