I would have thought with that much cheese that it would have tasted cheesy, but there was no real flavor to this dish. I appreciate the fact that it is healthy, but will not make it again.
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.

I made this, and, like most would, with a few mods based on what I had on hand. I had made a portobello lasagna, so I used the same mixture, with a little lemon and herb, but with ricotta, to use it up, and half jack cheese since I had shredded it yesterday. I also added sundried tomato pesto to the noodles for a twist. It turned out fabulous! Thank you very much! This will be made again:D
I made a few exchanges (1TB cornstarch for one of the tablespoon's flour; topped with more cheese vs. breadcrumbs, added fresh vs. frozen spinach, added soy meat crumbles for more protein, used soy milk vs. regular milk (that's all I had available), and added garlic powder and more salt for more flavor). GREAT base for this recipe, I will keep this one to make again!!
It was good, left out the breadcrumb topping used more cheddar, and next time omitting cottage cheese and spinach and adding more cheddar. Also added some more salt, pepper, and garlic powder which is what I added when I ate it for more flavor. Was good as is just changed a little for our taste.
This turned out to be extremely bland. Followed ingredients/instructions exactly. Will not make this again.
