This healthier Mac and Cheese is made with Dreamfields pasta and a silky smooth, ooey gooey cheese sauce. THM S
Feel free to use this cheese sauce on zoodles or another low carb pasta alternative if you prefer!
Can I use Dreamfields pasta on the THM plan?
Dreamfields pasta has always been a bit of a grey area. Dreamfields pasta used to be touted as a low carb pasta, but then there was a big lawsuit, and claims changed. To my understanding, Dreamfields pasta is more “slow carb” than “low carb.”
Dreamfields is ok to use as a personal choice item on the THM plan in an S or E setting occasionally, but monitor your own reaction to it to decide if it’s for you or not. Dreamfields is not considered a Fuel Pull ingredient. If you find your weight loss stalling, Dreamfields pasta would be an item to cut back on.
You can find Dreamfields pasta at Walmart and most grocery stores.
As I said above, feel free to use your favorite veggie noodle substitute in place of the Dreamfields pasta if you prefer!
Turn it into a meal!
Feel free to add chopped fully cooked ham, hot dogs, chicken, or turkey for protein.
I added some crushed Ryvita cracker crumbs on top for garnish and some crunch. Plenty of salt and black pepper are essential – so don’t skimp on those!
Use this cheese sauce on all the things!
The sauce in this dish is a great basic cheese sauce that you could use for many different things!
Perfect for picky eaters!
I guarantee your children and picky husbands will enjoy this mac and cheese! I first created this recipe when I was living at home with my parents and three younger siblings and everyone scarfed it down.
