Mac &Cheese

While I don't suggest eating this every night (or even every week) if you are health conscious, this is a healthier way to make a traditional favorite. You can also cook up some chicken breasts and add them into the completed mixture for some complete proteins.
brown rice noodles
12 oz fat free American cheese
Frozen peas, broccoli, and spinach
1/4 cup fat free milk
1 1/4 cup fat free plain yogurt
2 tbls cornstarch

1. Over low heat, whisk the cornstarch and milk together until smooth. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the package directions.
2. Add the cheese and yogurt and stir over low heat until the cheese is melted. (you can add some garlic at this point for additional flavor)
3. Add the vegetables and stir until the mixture is heated through.
4. Remove from heat and add the drained pasta to the mixture.
