Editor’s note: This dish isn’t exactly “skinny,” but it is a healthier version than your average mac and cheese recipe. Switch the cup of gruyere cheese for part-skim mozzarella, and you’ll bring the fat down even further.

Editor’s note: Loading your sandwich with veggies is a great idea, but go easy on the cheese and skip the butter: Instead of the Havarti, use 1 oz (30 g) part-skim mozzarella per sandwich, and spray your skillet with nonstick cooking spray to keep the fat in a healthy range.
