³ Description

Mac and cheese may be my favorite food... and it's SO tough to come up with a truly light alternative that maintains that cheesy satisfaction. This recipe satisfies my craving without any of the guilt AND adds protein without the fat using some cottage cheese! Sneaky, but delicious! After all, 6g of fat and 18g protein ain't too shabby for mac! It's slimalicious, baby!
