Copy Cat recipe for Noodles and Company Macaroni and Cheese.

I want to try this recipe. 

Things I think I would consider substituting to make it healthier: 
  • using whole wheat noodles
  • maybe subsitiute olive oil instead of the butter?
  • use fat free half and half
  • consider using reduced fat cheese
What do you think?


1 lb. elbow noodles
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
3 cups half and half
1/2 tsp salt
3 Cups Monterrey Jack (or Colby Jack)

Cook pasta according to package directions.

In large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour making a roux. Gradually stir in half and half whisking until thickened. Stir in salt. Remove from heat. Add cheese, stir until cheese melts. Top with fancy shredded mild cheddar cheese.
