Macaroni and cheese is a classic staple in our house. When we went gluten free, and I started Weight Watchers, I originally thought it was something we couldn’t eat anymore. However, because there are some amazing gluten-free noodle options, and Weight Watchers assigns 0 PointsPlus to all veggies, we can enjoy veggie loaded macaroni and cheese for dinner!

This is also a good potluck dish. Most people don’t think about allergies (or calories!) when it comes to family gatherings. Bringing a gluten-free dish that is also something those on Weight Watchers can eat is a win-win.
