Low Carb Macaroni & Cheese

Mac & CheeseThis is a no messin around real Macaroni & Cheese with real low carb pasta.  You will need 1 recipe of low carb Spaetzle  as your pasta and this should yield about 3 cups.  This is a super easy recipe to make including the Spaetzle.  If you want to gild your lily put a recipe of Au Gratin Casserole Topping on top.  This will add 1.5g net carbs per serving.

I use Gruyere cheese in mine but of course any good cheddar, Swiss or combination of cheeses will work.  If you can’t tell from some of my other recipes Gruyere is definitely my cheese of choice.  My husband says I use too much of it (and yes, it is expensive) and I have to keep telling him to get over it.  I also happen to like a really creamy mac & cheese and if you don’t then use ½ C less cream.  Sprinkle some crumbled bacon on and Ooh La La.

This is extremely filling due to its high fat content.

Ingredients
  1. 1 Recipe Spaetzle
  2. 2 T Butter
  3. 1⅔ C Heavy Cream
  4. 2 t Mustard Powder
  5. 2 t Chicken Base
  6. ½ t Pepper
  7. ½ t Paprika
  8. 1 C Grated Cheese (About 3 oz)
  9. 2 T Parmesan Cheese
Instructions
  1. Sauté spaetzle in butter until golden brown spots begin to appear. Take out of skillet, put in 6"x6" casserole dish, and sprinkle with cheese.
  2. On medium, begin heating heavy cream, add mustard, chicken base, pepper, & paprika and thicken slightly.
  3. Pour over pasta, top with Parmesan and bake in 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes.

Notes
  1. This is how I do it if I'm heating it later. I microwave everything on low until just warm. This way the cheese does not curdle and it takes far less time to cook overall.
  2. OK, now you can mess around a bit. You can add tuna or anything you want before you begin heating this dish and it will probably take an extra ¼ C of cream.
  3. If you like a crustier mac & cheese save some cheese for topping.
  4. Recipe easily doubles or triples.
