Veggie Loaded Mac and Cheese Weight Watchers Friendly
Last Updated on
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 Weight Watchers Mac and Cheese will even win over your kids! Plus it's a great way to sneak in veggies.

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.
Veggie Loaded Mac N Cheese
8oz elbow noodles (gluten-free)
1 cup low fat shredded colby jack
1 cup fat free milk
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 yellow pepper
1/2 green pepper
1 cup yellow corn
This recipe makes 6 servings about 1/2 cup per serving.
Cook macaroni al dente. Rinse with cold water so it doesn't get soggy.
Saute veggies together in a large skillet.
Combine with cooked macaroni, fat free milk, and 1/2 cup cheese.
Spread into casserole dish, cover with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
Bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
