Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

Green Gourmets Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese


  • 1 box of macaroni
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk
  • 1 16 oz container of lowfat cottage cheese
  • 1 package of shredded cheddar - or approximately 1.5 cups of cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp white ground pepper or whatever pepper you have
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cupĀ pumpkin

While cooking your noodles, mix all the other ingredients in a large bowl, reserving 1/2 cup of cheddar for the top. Add the cooked noodles, mix thoroughly. Butter your pan, put the noodle mixture in the pan, top with remainder of the shredded cheese. Bake for about 30-45 minutes at 350. Start off with aluminum foil on top, take it off half way through so the cheese gets nice and toasty.
