Heart Healthy Recipes: Day 7

Snack mix, creamy mac and cheese, roasted asparagus

Rich and Creamy Mac and Cheese

Serves 4; 1/2 cup per serving

4 ounces dried elbow macaroni

4 slices low-fat American cheese, about 3/4 ounce each

1/3 cup fat-free milk

2 tablespoons light tub margarine

1 teaspoon prepared mustard

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (lowest sodium available)

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon red hot-pepper sauce

In a large saucepan, prepare the macaroni using the package directions, omitting the salt and oil. Drain well in a colander. Return to the pan.

Add the remaining ingredients, stirring until the cheese melts. Cook over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly thickened, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes to continue to thicken.
