Easy One Skillet Mac and Cheese

Everyone loves mac and cheese, but it isn’t the healthiest dish. Mac and cheese, especially when made from a package, is high in fat and calories, but low in nutrients. We’ve upgraded the classic pasta dish to make it healthier. Our version uses whole-wheat pasta, which is a great source of fiber. We also use low-fat cheese, which cuts down on the calorie count. Even though our version is clean, it’s just as tasty as your go-to mac and cheese. It’s just as easy, too! It’s a true one skillet mac and cheese, which makes cooking and cleaning up a breeze. What’s not to love?
