My Weight And Me: Week 1
The one meal that I cooked last week was Slimming World's Mac "n" Cheese and it was delicious. Here is the recipe.
SW Mac "n"Cheese
Ready in 50 minutes.
300g dried macaroni
1 red onion finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 roasted red pepper in brine from a jar, finely chopped
1 courgette, coursely grated
400ml vegetable stock
200g fat free natural cottage cheese
1tsp english mustard powder mixed with 1 tsp water
2 eggs lightly beaten
160g reduced fat cheddar coarsely grated
salt and freshly ground black pepper
a salad of mixed leaves and thinly sliced yellow peppers to serve
1)Preheat your oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Cook the macaroni according to the packet instructions, then drain well and tip into a wide mixing bowl.
2)Meanwhile, place a large frying pan sprayed with Frylight over a high heat. Add the onion, garlic, red pepper and courgette and cook, stirring for 2 -3 minutes. Add to the macaroni.
3)Put the stock, tomato puree, cottage cheese, mustard, and eggs in a jug and whisk until smooth. Pour this over the macaroni mixture, then stir in three quarters of the Cheddar. Season and toss well.
4) Transfer to a shallow, ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over the remaining Cheddar and bake for 15-20minutes or until bubbling and golden. Allow to rest for 5 minutes then serve with the salad.
Simple and delicious. Let me know if you try this recipe and what you think of it.
Till next time,
