Macaroni and cheese is a classic staple in our house. Weight Watchers assigns 0 points to all veggies, so we can enjoy veggie loaded macaroni and cheese for dinner! Now with the new Freestyle plan, you can add CHICKEN to this recipe without adding any extra points!
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.
