6 oz canned pimento, chopped
4 oz whole-wheat crackers, mashed into crumbs
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a 9 X 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Cook macaroni in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, about 7 minutes; drain and transfer to a large bowl. Add soup, mayonnaise, cheese, pepper and pimentos; mix well to combine.
Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish and top with cracker crumbs.
Bake, uncovered, until top is golden, about 20 to 25 minutes. Slice into 6 pieces and serve.
We renovated Macaroni and Cheese Casserole by:
Using low-fat cheddar cheese instead of the full-fat variety.
Using fat-free mayonnaise instead of regular.
Reducing the amount of cracker crumbs in the topping.
