Who doesn't love comfort food! Especially when you start that dang diet again! Haha... It's that time again, the "I ate too much through the Holidays, got to go on a diet NOW" time! :))))
Anyway, my daughter and have teamed up to work together support wise...as we go on our choosen diets and exercise routines! Here is my first post for the "Lean 'n Mean Cuisine " recipes....

Homestyle Mac 'n Cheese

1 box of DreamFields corkscrew pasta
Enough water to cover about an inch over the pasta in a deep pot or cast iron pan.

1 jar of cheddar cheese dip, (Find in the Chips & Snacks aisle)
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese, about 2 cups
