Skinny Broccoli Mac and Cheese

I've been craving mac and cheese like crazy lately but I rarely make it because it has just way too many calories. My version has half the fat and calories of traditional mac and cheese and the additon of broccoli makes it even better! My non broccoli eating six year old asked for seconds so I knew it was a good choice!

Skinny Broccoli Mac and Cheese
Makes 6 cups
Cal 325, Carbs 57.3, Fat 5.1, Fiber 6, Protein 14.5

1 12oz box elbow macaroni (I used Ronzoni)
1/2 cup fat free milk
1 cup shredded american cheese
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
1/8 cup bread crumbs
1.5 cups chopped broccoli

Pre-Heat oven to 375.

Meanwhile cook macaroni to al dente. Transfer to a baking dish.

In a large sauce pan whisk together milk and american cheese. Once smooth and melted pour cheese over macaroni. Stir in the chopped broccoli. Sprinkle mozarealla and parmesan cheese on top. Finish with the breadcrumbs.

Bake uncovered for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and the top has a nice crust to it. Enjoy!
