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 CheeseTheCattleQueen Cooks
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 chicken broth soft cube, Knorr's brand. *(Or add one can of chicken broth with some water to cover as mentioned above)
1 jar of cheddar cheese dip, (Find in the Chips & Snacks aisle)
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese, about 2 cups
Season with pepper or a non salt seasoning, (the broth has plenty of sodium or use a low sodium)
1 small jar of pimentos with the oil
3 strips of bacon cooked crisp and crumbed for topping.
Chives for garnish
In a large stock pot, add the past, water, broth cube and jar of pimentos /oil. Boil until the pasta is cooked. No need for draining liquids.

Next, add the shreaded cheese and blend.
