    List of Ingredients

    1 pound uncooked macaroni, elbow-variety, regular or whole wheat
    1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
    12 oz fat-free evaporated milk
    2 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese, sharp-variety
    1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
    1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
    1/4 tsp table salt
    1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
    2 Tbsp seasoned bread crumbs
    2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


    Preheat oven to 350║F.

    Cook pasta according to package directions (without added salt or fat). Drain and transfer to a large bowl. While pasta is still hot, stir in sour cream; set aside.

    Scald evaporated milk by heating it in a small saucepan over medium heat until tiny bubbles just appear around the edges, about 3 minutes. Remove milk from heat and add cheddar cheese, mustard, pepper, salt and nutmeg to pan; stir until cheese melts.

    Fold cheese mixture into pasta and transfer mixture to a 4-quart casserole dish. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and sprinkle bread crumb mixture over pasta mixture.

    Bake until top is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.
