A great, healthy Mac and Cheese that kids love.
The key to this is to not overheat the sauce. The eggs need to cook, but if you let the sauce boil, it will likely curdle. That won't really affect the flavor, but the texture will be a bit lumpy.
Servings: 2 | Serving size: 2 ounces pasta with sauce
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes
This recipe can easily be multiplied. Leftovers are good. Reheat gently after adding 1- Tbsp. of 2% milk per serving.
Place the water in a medium stock-pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until done. Do not overcook - the pasta should be cooked al dente.
While the pasta is cooking, combine the eggs and milk in a medium sauce pan. Whisk until smooth. Add the reduced-fat cheddar cheese and salt.
When the pasta is done, drain well and add it to the pot with the cheese over medium heat. Stir well until the cheese is completely melted and creamy. Don't let the mixture boil, and when the sauce is very thick, remove from the heat.
Add fresh ground black pepper to taste, stir, and serve immediately.
