A Killer Mac N Cheese Recipe

By Avera

  • 1/2 box Dreamfields Pasta, Penne Shape (holds the most cheese)

  • 2 cups shredded Sharp Cheddar

  • 1/3 cup shredded or grated Parmesan

  • 4 oz. Brie (about 1/2 of a large triangle)

  • 1/2 stick butter

  • Tabasco Sauce (optional but highly recommended)

  1. Boil 1/2 box of Dreamfields Penne for 12 min in salted water.

  2. While pasta is cooking, cut crusts off the Brie, cut into 1 inch cubes.

  3. Drain pasta, return immediately to pan.

  4. Stir in 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter until completely melted.

  5. Stir in brie cubes until melting.

  6. Sprinkle in parmesan, add cheddar cheese then stir until the cheddar completely melts and the sauce forms a creamy consistency. Keep stirring! Returning the pan to the burner you shut off helps it get done faster.

  7. Add dashes of Tabasco to taste, I put about 5 big shakes. Add 4-5 grinds of pepper. If you don\'t use Tabasco, you may want to add 2 tsp of cream or half and half to thin it out just a tad.

Dreamfields pasta is made in North Dakota. It has a low carb count, because most of the carbs are non-digestable carbs. It is awesome!!!

This looks great, has anyone tried it with the smart balance sticks to make it less fat and more healthy type of fat?
