I loved this dish. Definately use sharp cheddar cheese. I used the reduced fat version. I also used wheat flour since I didn't have whole wheat noodles on hand just regular ones... I am definately making it again. Instead of doing a layer of spinach, I mixed it in the mac. I needed to ensure my 3-year-old did not have an easy time trying to pick it out. It worked. She ate it. :)
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 is absolutely delicious!
This recipe was a big hit at our house, I love how easy it is and my husband and toddler both wolfed it down.
I just made this last night from and old copy of EW. Kids (3 and 5 yr olds) loved it and it's easy so it gets 5 stars from me. I only put spinach on half of it. Will definitely be making this again - my kids told me it's better then the boxed stuff. Oh - one change because I didn't have whole wheat pasta - I just used regular elbow macaroni.
I made this with gluten-free pasta and lowfat cheeses. My family
loved it !!!
