Recipe by Amy Brolsma
"My family loves Macaroni and Cheese! But being so high in fat, I felt I needed to come up with something a little less "fatty" and good tasting too. I also use cooked spaghetti squash in place of the pasta sometimes."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

nonfat cottage cheese
reduced fat processed cheese food, cubed
liquid smoke flavoring
crushed saltine crackers
Why all the flavoring? Why cottage cheese? This makes a dish that that you bake to get rid of the germs from the egg? Make it simple, noodles and cheese melted in the microwave. Or Craft Dinner. All the same. (Choice 1 is healthier)(Rating because of ingredients.)
Since all the fatty cheesy goodness is taken out, something needs to be added in. Some nutritional yeast really improved this for a negligible amount of calories and lots of salt and fresh cracked pepper. This isnt a creamy style mac and cheese so if you like it creamy.. add more cottage cheese or yogurt to this.. I left out the sweetener.. dont like that in my mac
I've tried a similar recipe didn't need an egg. Did use some shredded cheddar nothing processed no flour. The cottage cheese was low fat had onions and other veggies in it and the POINT of this recipe is it's healthy. People need to look at the nutritional analysis of meals.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
