These individual mac-and-cheese casseroles call for pungent Parmesan and extra-sharp cheddar, which means the noodles get away with less-than-usual amounts of cheese. Low-fat milk, chicken stock, and olive oil keep the sauce creamy.

    To make 1/2 a recipe simple reduce All into half amounts.The nutmeg is traditional in All Macaroni Cheese recipes. Omit this & cayenne powder if not enjoyed yet does add flavour. Bread is traditional on top of Macaroni Cheese. When full fats are not used Herbes & Spices take a well deserved place for even Salt.

    What's up with the nutmeg? Nutmeg has a strong taste and I don't want it in my Mac and Cheese.

    I just put this into my Weight Watchers Recipe builder and it's 13 points. Not something I would call "lighter". I'm not sure what the bread is all about, I think the macaroni should be enough. You could probably do half of everything but that would still give you 4 servings.

    I completely agree about the need for nutritional information - especially for these recipes that are supposed to be "lighter." It's hard to judge how light they really are without information regarding calories/fat grams per serving.

    how does one reduce the amount for smaller serving? there is only 2 of us. Don't like making this much up at one time.

    Never one to follow directions i took a few shortcuts on this recipe to accomodate with what i already had and it still turned out great. I used rye bread instead of white, didn't add cayenne or the tomatoes, and made it casserole style instead of individual ramekins. Add crushed red pepper-Delish!
