This is pretty good, considering its a healthier option, nice and creamy and cheesy enough. Two changes I would make when I make it again would be to leave out the nutmeg (kinda weird) and leave off the breadcrumbs (not really necessary)
Baked Mac & Cheese
Mac & cheese can be a true comfort on a gloomy day, and our healthy update takes advantage of extra-sharp Cheddar balanced with creamy low-fat cottage cheese and tucks a layer of spinach into the middle, which may help picky eaters down their vegetables. Whole-wheat pasta adds robust flavor and extra fiber.

This mac and cheese recipe is the BEST. I like to do it with a layer of peas instead of the spinach.

This was really good. I didn't add the spinach but I added a little dry mustard to the flour and 1/4c. milk to make it more like the full fat recipe that I love. Will definitely make this again!
I love the combination of spinach and cheese. It's great to have a healthy update of our family's favorite dinner.
