This recipe not only hits the cheese craving, but also is loaded up on the veggies and is easy to alter depending on how you prefer your mac. Plus it is super low in ww points!
Below is how I have altered the recipe...
1 C. whole wheat pasta (I use shells)
1 wedge laughing cow creamy Swiss cheese
1-2 servings Green Giant frozen broccoli in cheese sauce
1 slice white onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Bring water to a boil and cook pasta according to package
While the pasta is cooking, cook the broccoli according to package instructions (microwave 2 1/2 to 3 minutes)
Saute onions with spray butter until translucent
Drain pasta, mix together with broccoli w/ cheese sauce, wedge of laughing cow and onions.
Viola! How easy is that!
(I apologize for the sloppy presentation ... I was so hungry after spinning that I had to dive right into this meal. Also, the tint of red is because I put some Crystal hot sauce on top for some spice)
You can use the Green Giant frozen broccoli OR cauliflower- both are delicious...you could even mix them if you so desire.
I just added the onions for the first time this evening and I liked it but you can leave them out if you are not an onion fan.
Weight Watchers points* (approximate) is 3 for the pasta, 1 for the laughing cow cheese and 0 points per serving, so I say 1 point for 2 packages. That makes for a total of 5 for a whole lotta dinner!
