Kraft Kitchens Tips

Healthy Living
Preparing this delicious recipe with 2% milk Cheddar cheese and fat-free milk instead of regular cheese and 2% milk saves 60 calories, 6g fat and 4g saturated fat per serving. In addition, using whole wheat macaroni boosts the fiber to 4g per serving compared to 2g fiber per serving when prepared with regular macaroni.
Variation
Substitute cooked broccoli florets for the spinach and chopped red bell peppers for the tomatoes.
Substitute
Substitute 3 cups whole wheat rotini pasta for the 2 cups elbow macaroni.
