    • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups)
    • 1 (1-ounce) slice whole wheat bread
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 2 cups fat-free milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded smoked Gouda cheese
    • 1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) grated fresh Romano cheese
    • 5 cups coarsely chopped fresh spinach
    • 4 cups hot cooked elbow macaroni (about 2 cups uncooked)
    • (preferably wheat)
    • Cooking spray

    Directions

    1. Place bread in a food processor, and pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs measure 1/2 cup.
    2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook 1 minute. Add flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, salt, and pepper, stirring constantly with a whisk until blended. Bring to a boil; cook until thick (about 2 minutes). Add cheeses; stir until melted.
    3. Add spinach and macaroni to cheese sauce, stirring until well blended. Spoon mixture into a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until bubbly.
