    8 oz Elbow Macaroni
    8 oz Fat-Free Sour Cream
    3 tbsp Smart Balance Light
    2 tbsp Bread Crumbs
    2 tbsp Parmesan Cheese
    1 cup Cabot 75% Cheddar
    2 tsp Dijon Mustard

    Cook macaroni; drain and transfer to bowl and stir in the sour cream.

    Melt Smart Balance Light in a large saucepan. Transfer 1 tbsp of Smart Balance to a small bowl and mix with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Mix with a fork and set aside.

    Add cheddar cheese and Dijon mustard to the remaining 2 tbsp Smart Balance. Set pan over medium heat and cook 2 minutes, or until cheese begins to melt, stirring constantly.

    Add macaroni mixture to cheese sauce and cook 1 minute to heat through, stirring constantly to combine everything. Transfer mac and cheese mixture to plate and top with the breadcrumb mixture.*

    Serves 4 (1 ½ cups) @ 7 Points each.

    * = you can also make a head up to this point. Place mac and cheese in a 8x8 pan and sprinkle breadcrumb mix over; cover and place in fridge or freezer. To warm, bake at 350* for 20 minutes covered and another 5-10 uncovered.

    Paris, this looks great. Thanks for posting. [img]graemlins/thumbup.gif[/img]

    One question though - what is "Smart Balance Light"? I'm thinking it's probably light margarine, but I don't think we have that brand here.

    Pat,

    It is a trans-fat free margarine. Feel free to sub with your margarine of choice or butter, just remember to change the points accordingly.

    Thanks, Paris. We do have a different brand of "no trans fat" margarine that I will sub.

    Bump! This will be great for dinner on Friday since it's Lent and I'm not eating meat.

    Paris, if this is as good as your minestrone soup recipe, it will be great!

    Kristale, check this soup out too, no meat and it really is wonderful. I made it several times over this past winter.
