Cooking Thursday~~Baked Mac and Cheese

This is another Weight Watcher's recipe I made this week.  I am really loving this program.  I hate I repeat hate counting calories, fat ect.  The points system of WW does it all for you!

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

12 oz. uncooked macaroni
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
12 oz. fat free evaporated milk
8 oz. low fat cheddar cheese shredded
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt (I left this out because cheese has salt in it)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp dried bread crumbs
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350.  Cook pasta and drain.  While pasta is still hot stir in sour cream.

Heat milk in saucepan over medium heat until tiny bubbles appear around the edges.  Reduce heat to low and add cheese and simmer until melted.  Whisk about 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in mustard, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Pour cheese sauce into pasta mix well.  Place into a 3 quart casserole dish. 

Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and sprinkle over pasta.  Bake until top is golden.  Around 30 minutes.  1 cup per serving.  WW Points 7.
