You know those weird family recipes that float around, like peanut butter and bacon sandwiches and spaghetti in hot dog soup? Others would cringe at the thought of them, but we swear they are the “BEST EVER”! Today, I’m sharing one of those. Today’s recipe isn’t quite at strange as peanut butter and bacon, but its an unlikely combination that’s SKINNY and insanely good. I’ve been enjoying this skinny pasta since I was a wee one and I now refer to it as Skinny Lady “Mac + Cheese”. This sophisticated imposter doesn’t actually contain cheese, but one taste and you’d swear it did!
Skinny Lady Mac + Cheese
a childhood (and now adulthood) favorite
- two cups of cooked angel hair pasta
- 1/2 cup fat free (or low fat) sour cream (you can add more sour cream if you’d like your pasta more “cheesy”)
- 1/2 tbsp. butter
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- 1-2 tsp. garlic salt
- salt & pepper to taste
Prepare two cups of cooked pasta, strain it place back in warm saucepan. Add sour cream, milk, butter and garlic powder-stir. You may add more sour cream or milk to thicken or thin the consistency.
Add salt & pepper to taste. Enjoy!
