Usually when I hear "healthy" I run in the opposite direction, especially when combined with something like mac and cheese, but this recipe was delicious. It was flavorful and creamy and didn't taste like any flavor had been sacrificed in the name of making it healthy. Healthy doesn't have to mean bland! This recipe is a keeper.
