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!
Cook pasta according to package directions, in boiling salted water.
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a pot over medium heat, whisk together cottage cheese, greek yogurt and almond milk. Add flour and continue to mix until sauce thickens. Add dijon and cheddar cheese. Stir until melted together and well combined.
Add noodles to sauce mixture, along with tomatoes, blue cheese and salt & pep. Coat noodles thoroughly, being careful not to damage/squish.
Transfer to individual casserole dishes, or one large casserole dish. Top with parmesan and optional bread crumbs.
Bake 25-30 minutes, until tops begin to brown. Feel free to broil for a final minute to brown as desired.
