  • 16ounces uncooked elbow macaroni (or whole-wheat pasta for an added 3.5 g fiber per serving)
  • 3tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2cups skim milk
  • 1tablespoon light butter (stick or tub)

  • 3ounces Velveeta Light cheese, cut into thin strips
  • 1/8teaspoon black pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Boil macaroni until tender but firm. While pasta cooks, whisk together flour and 1/2 cup milk in a small bowl. Pour remaining 1 1/2 cups milk into a large saucepan and heat over low. Once milk is slightly warmed, turn heat to medium-low and add flour and milk mixture, stirring constantly until thick. Reduce heat slightly and add butter, cheeses, and pepper. Cook until smooth, about 5 minutes. Drain macaroni, then combine with cheese mixture, stirring thoroughly. Pour into a 13″ x 9″ baking dish. Sprinkle breadcrumbs lightly and evenly on top and bake 30 to 35 minutes. Serve immediately.
