Skillet Mac-n-Cheese

This mac-n-cheese is not only delicious, but it is made all in one skillet...even better it is lower in fat and calories than a lot of other mac-n-cheese recipes, but trust me no one would ever guess it!!

REMEMBER!! WATCH YOUR PORTIONS! I have found that many do best when they control their portions rather than deny themselves food!
