Skinny Mac and Cheese

So apparently you’re not official until you’ve created Skinny Mac and Cheese. This is what I’ve realized. Like, yeah, I could make some stuff taste good and I could cut some calories out of some pretty normal foods, but could I skinnify mac and cheese? No? Then yeah, not official. I mean, that’s how it felt. Because at least 30 different people have asked me about a skinny mac and cheese recipe and I’m always like, “Uhh . . . yeah . . . I think I have something like that.” Well, that was my response until now 🙂Skinny Mac and Cheese by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogSkinny Mac and Cheese by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogHere’s what you have to have to make the perfect homemade pasta:

Favorites? I love this cooking set from Anthropologie. Not only is it beautiful, but every pot and pan is the perfect size. I also love that ravioli cutter. There’s nothing like homemade pasta. And finally, please, someone, buy me that gray dining set. My birthday’s in June 😉

Skinny Mac and Cheese by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogLike I said, because Mac and Cheese seems to be America’s staple food, I knew I needed to make a skinny version that wouldn’t lack flavor. And you know what this recipe reminds me of? Have any of you ever tried California Pizza Kitchen’s mac? Which you can totally order with edamame (so good). Welp, kind of tastes like that. Obsessed.
