One of my favorite things on earth to eat is macaroni and cheese. Especially with bacon. Mmmmmm, bacon.
But considering I have high cholesterol and am trying to not gain weight, I know it’s not the best choice for me to actually consume it very often. Recently I was looking at the latest edition of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine and came across a lower calorie mac and cheese type recipe, so I thought I would give it a whirl.
What I like about this recipe is A. you use a little less pasta, so less carbs B. you add lots of vitamin A-rich butternut squash and C. there isn’t a ton of cheese so it’s lower in fat. Win-win!
This recipe includes reduced-sodium bacon as a topping but of course you could not use it, or use turkey bacon instead. I chose to do it this time with no bacon.
