Step-By-Step

1In a microwavable mixing bowl, combine laughing cow cheese, butter spread, milk and wheat flour. Heat at 80% power for 3-4 minutes, until bubbly.

2Whisk ingredients till smooth. Continue heating for an additional 2 minutes until mixture thickens.

3Add in cottage cheese, pasta, mustard, ham, seasoned salt, garlic powder and shredded cheese. Mix together.

4Pour into a lightly greased 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees F for 45-50 minutes, until pasta is tender.

5Top with parmesan and enjoy!

6Options:
1)You can top the mixture with breadcrumbs before baking.

3) I often use almond milk in this recipe for a nutty richness.
