Everyday Lighter Macaroni and Cheese with Ham and Peas
Why This Recipe Works
We found four ways to reduce the fat (and calories) in our macaroni and cheese recipe. We replaced 12 ounces of full-fat cheddar cheese with 8 ounces of low-fat cheddar cheese and substituted 2 percent milk for whole milk. A can of 2 percent evaporated milk added creaminess, and cornstarch replaced the butter roux.
