    ladypit's Note:

    Found this in a Weight Watcher's cookbook of recipes from the magazine in 2000. This is fast to make and has a nice flavour. Not a zingy dish, but the kids and I enjoyed it. 2/3 of a cup is 3 WW points.

      This was very quick and easy and the taste of the salsa and seasoning was a nice addition, but we next time I may try adding in a few handfuls of shredded cheese just to get a cheesier texture.

      Awesome mac and cheese! I used corkscrew pasta for this dish and it turned out very nice. Lots of flavor with the taco seasoning and homemade salsa. Very easy to make and fast as well. I used 8 ounces of light velveeta cheese. Made for "low in" or "Free of" challenge in the photo forum. Thanks Ladypit for another fantasic recipe.
