Being a mac and cheese fanatic, I wish I could have it every day, but obviously that's not the healthiest plan. Tonight, I made something similar, but on the lighter side. Pasta with butter, cheese and parmesan is like an Italian version of m & c. Sooo, I guess you could say this is sort of like that! Mmm...I want to make this again, right. now.
Cheesy Pasta (makes 2 servings)
1 cup whole wheat small shell pasta
1 tbsp. Smart Balance butter blend
1 teaspoon parmesan cheese
1 wedge Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb cheese
1 wedge Laughing Cow French Onion cheese
salt, pepper and chili pepper flakes to taste
Bring water to a boil and salt water. Cook pasta until just al dente (with a bit of a bite). Drain pasta and pour back into pot. Add butter blend and stir to combine add cheeses and mix together. Add salt and pepper to taste. DEVOUR!
Happy (almost) Thanksgiving!
