2 Tbsp Land O’ Lakes light butter

You don’t always have to eat your healthy mac and cheese plain! Here are some of my favorite toppings and mix ins: broccoli, bacon bits, sauteed lean ground meat, cubed firm tofu, oven roasted veggies (especially halved grape tomatoes), shrimp, Italian herbs like fresh basil or crushed rosemary.
