Transform mac and cheese into a heart-healthy meal — well healthier — with this creative alternative from Food Republic co-founder, Chef Marcus Samuelsson. He recently demoed this dish on The Dr. Oz Show. The chef’s secret? This dish uses whole-wheat pasta and swaps out the traditional milk and cream for rice milk. With almost no fat and very few calories, rice milk adds the perfect twist to this classic dish. Combine with collard greens for a hearty but still healthy dinner.
