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.

  1. It sounds delicious to me! And I do love the idea of bringing it to a potluck…often times there is nothing for those that are gluten free to eat, other than what they brought.

  2. Wow, this calls my name. I should give this recipe a try. I’m craving for pasta right now. So will try your recipe. Looks delicious #HomeMattersParty

  3. This mac and cheese looks sooooo good! I have never tried adding veggies to mine, but definitely will give your recipe a try soon. Pinning!

  4. I love recipes with hidden veggies! I can’t wait to try this mac ‘n cheese. Thanks for linking up with Merry Monday last week!

  5. Saw this recipe and it’s a life saver for a Weight Watcher! I’m going to a Samhain Pot Luck, and I’m bringing this! Most of the women are vegetarians, so this will be good (no vegans, so the cheese will not be a problem). Thanks for sharing.

  6. All of my mac an cheeses always have meat or just cheese. Don’t know why it didn’t dawn on me to add veggies. This looks delicious!

    1. 2 cups of corn is not 10 points. Corn is 1 SmartPoint or 1 PointsPlus for 4oz, so 2PP for 8oz. You can omit the corn if you want it to be lower points. :)
