2 cup Pasta, macaroni, elbow, whole wheat, dry
1 1/2 cup Cottage cheese (1% M.F.)
2 tbsp Canola oil
1/2 cup All-purpose white flour
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
2 cup Milk, fat-free (skimmed)
2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, reduced fat (18%)
2 cup Cherry Tomatoes (cut in half)


Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, blend cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth. Set aside.

In a large saucepan over a medium heat, combine oil, flour, pepper and garlic powder; stir until mixed. Gradually stir in the milk and bring to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes or until thickened and smooth. Add the blended cottage cheese and cheddar cheese, stirring until melted.

Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray. After the macaroni has been cooked and drained, place it in the prepared casserole dish. Pour the cheese mixture over the macaroni and mix until blended. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until heated through. Top with tomatoes just before serving.
